An immediate ban on wildlife business

Yes, the coronavirus has once again exposed the business of wild animals in China to the world. Wildlife conservation institutions have also issued warnings about this many times. It has also been condemned at the international level. At that time this criticism was because many species of animals have reached the verge of extinction due to illegal trade. Following the spread of the coronavirus, the Chinese government has imposed an immediate ban on the business of wildlife, to prevent the spread of the virus. Organizations working for wildlife conservation are trying to use this opportunity to completely stop this trade.

The shocking report of the World Health Organization

The organization says that the primary source of this virus maybe bats. There are many restaurants in China where people eat bat soup. Dishes such as roasted cobra, bear's claw, tiger bones, and bean liquor are available in expensive restaurants. While bats are also found in these soup bowls. Let me tell you that in China the meat of some animals is eaten due to their taste. But some animals are used here for traditional medicines. This business is also flourishing in China.

Crisis of extinction from illegal trade in animals

The demand for the armor of pangolin animals is high in China. Due to this, these animals have almost disappeared in China. Due to increasing demand in China, it has also become the most hunted animal in other parts of the world. Rhinoceros horn is in high demand in Chinese medicine. The rhinoceros has become a threatened animal. All this is happening in China when the government knows that 70 percent of new viruses have come from wild animals.

Tiger hunting is happening in China

China is second in tiger hunting. Pauline Verheyes, associated with Traffic International, a UK-based organization, says at least part of 100 tigers is caught each year. From this, you can only guess how many tigers are being killed every year. Of the 13 countries in which tigers live, limbs of 1069 to 1220 tigers were caught between January 2000 and April 2000 from 11 countries. India is known as the tiger's home, where the largest number of organ traffickers has been caught.
