RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH WILDLIFE BREEDING AND AGRICULTURALIZATION OF WILD ANIMALS

Tuesday 10th August 2021

 A NEW STUDY FINDS THAT A MINORITY OF ANIMALS HOST THE MAJORITY OF ZOONOTIC VIRUSES

The EMS Foundation remains concerned about the devastating the negative effects of the COVID-19 global pandemic; and the growing risk of new pandemics which can be scientifically linked to the trade and consumption of wild animals.

The EMS Foundation sent a letter to Minister Thokozile Didiza and Minister Barbara Creecy with regard to new research which reaffirms ozonic spillover from the wildlife trade and consumption thereof.
