TOGETHER, OUR VOICE REACHED THE UNITED NATIONS!
Last year, we launched an international campaign to demand a ban on the sale and slaughter of live animals at wet markets around the world. Our petition addressed to the United Nations (U.N.) has collected more than five hundred thousand worldwide signatures.
On June 17, 2021, the signatures were delivered to U.N. asking the governing body to publicly acknowledge the risks live animal sales pose to global health, urging policymakers all over the world to restrict wet markets from selling live animals.
