LAUNCH OF WILDLIFE PETS REPORT
19TH February 

Humans have been sharing their homes with domesticated animals for millennia. But a darker side of the pet trade has exploded in recent times: exotic pets, and the cruelty that is inevitable in the poaching, breeding, trade and ownership of wild animals.

History shows us that exotic pets have been around for thousands of years. But what was once a relatively small scale, elite operation is no longer. Today, these animals are caught up in a multibillion-dollar global industry. The value of the trade globally stands at $30-42 Billion USD, and $20 billion of that is estimated to be generated from the illegal trade
