Petition – Tell the United Nations (UN) To BAN Wet Markets.

Petition link:

Dear Mark,

Today Animal Equality has launched an international campaign calling on the United Nations to demand an immediate global ban on all wet markets.

Please, sign our petition now and make sure the check box which says ‘Sign up for Animal Equality’s newsletter and receive updates and appeals via email’ is selected, so that you receive our updates on this campaign.


Animal Equality has investigated wet markets in China, India, and Vietnam. Our powerful investigation includes footage from a wet market in Wuhan, China, the city where many scientists speculate COVID-19 originated.

In wet markets, wild animals such as crocodiles, porcupines, deer, and bats are often sold alongside animals which are farmed for human consumption, including chickens and goats. It’s not uncommon to also find dogs and cats at these wet markets, which get their name in part from the floors that are soaked wet with blood.

At wet markets, live animals are slaughtered on the spot. There are no animal welfare or hygiene regulations in place. And, despite the documented dangers to public health and extreme cruelty to animals, wet markets remain legal.

Mark, please take a moment to watch our investigation to see what I’m talking about with your own eyes.

Wet markets are hell on earth for animals and they also pose a very real, imminent threat to the public health of the entire planet.

The time to act is now.

Petition link:

We are determined to make sure these blood-soaked markets across the world are shut down forever. The animals need your support to ensure the United Nations hears our message and takes action to protect animals and public health.

With gratitude,

Abigail Penny

Executive Director, Animal Equality UK
