We are at the point of no return. Wildlife crime has driven nature out of balance, and as 2020 has already demonstrated, it's putting us all at risk.
The illegal wildlife trade of species like pangolins is fuelling the extinction crisis. The illegal wildlife trade and consumption of high-risk wildlife - species that pose a grave risk for the transfer of viruses between animals to humans - is growing at an alarming rate.
Please make an urgent and important gift to help draw the line on wildlife crime, and help save pangolins and other endangered species from being hunted to extinction before it's too late.
Stamping out wildlife crime is a priority for WWF because it's one of the top two direct threats of the future of many of the world's most threatened animals. the other is the shocking rate of habitat destruction.
Your generous gift today is vital in helping drive WWF's global campaign to:
Cramming stressed, trafficked live animals like pangolins together with countless other species, in unhygienic conditions, creates ideal mixing bowls for the emergence of dangerous viruses.
Ebola, MERS, SARS, avian influenza and swine flue are just some of the growing number of wildlife-sourced diseases that have caused devastating pandemics. And now COVID-19 the most tragic health, social and economic crisis in living memory.
Please join us today to help WWF work across nations, the scientific sector and with communities to stamp out the trade of high-risk wildlife.
