End The Trade is a campaign to end the commercial trade and sale of wild animals for consumption in markets. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the dangers of virus transmission between wildlife and humans that has similarly been suggested in the cases of Ebola and SARS.

We believe that when the buying stops,
the killing can too.
The illegal wildlife trade is a multi-billion dollar global industry largely driven by consumer demand in expanding economies. While most wildlife conservation groups focus on scientific studies and anti-poaching efforts, WildAid works to reduce global consumption of wildlife products and to increase local support for conservation efforts. We also work with governments and partners to protect fragile marine reserves from illegal fishing and shark finning, to enhance public and political will for anti-poaching efforts, and to reduce climate change impacts.
WildAid enlists popular Asian, African and Western stars to spread the message about wildlife crime. Currently working with more than 100 ambassadors, we deliver high-impact, culturally sensitive campaigns that reach hundreds of millions of people each year. Our ambassadors represent film, television, music, sports, politics, religion, business and more.
