COVID-19 has transformed our world. We’ve had to radically change how we live to save lives. But, this is just a short-term fix.
Unless we change our ways, another pandemic will happen again. As an essential first step, wildlife markets must close. We must learn. We must re-educate ourselves. We must act. Watch our new short film to find out why when we protect them all, we protect ourselves.
