A call to end the wildlife trade in West Africa

In Nigeria, Ivory Coast and Liberia, the meat from alligators, pangolins, deer and other wild animals are sold in some local markets.

For many families in rural areas, hunting and selling bushmeat is their only means of income.

World Animal Protection is calling to end the wildlife trade at the G20 summit this November to protect wildlife and help prevent future pandemics similar to Covid-19.
