There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

China has made eating wild animals illegal after the coronavirus outbreak. But ending the trade won't be easy

Let me know what you think?

Do you think this can reduce or end the illegal trade of wild animals and animal parts, or do you think more is needed?

I recently started a thread (in the Miscellaneous Section) about the connection between the trade in and consumption of wild animals and the outbreak of diseases. My proposal is to move the article to that thread. 

As to the question. 

A law is one thing. Applying it is something else. Poaching needs to be addressed immediately. Organisations involved in trafficking have to be dismantled. The Chinese also need to support measures against countries unwilling to end the trade in wild animals. Last, but not least, is they have to develop, and help execute, a plan to remove the millions of snares in the forests of southeast Asia. 

Those who know agree there is a strong connection between the destruction of the natural world, the trade in wild animals, climate change and the outbreak of infectuous diseases. The present crisis shows that the outbreak of an unknown disease can have disastrous consequences. For this reason, conservation deserves priority. No matter what.
