The COVID-19 pandemic has placed the spotlight on the role of illegal and unregulated wildlife trade in the spread of zoonotic diseases. Such trade brings animals away from their natural habitats into close proximity with people along transport routes and in markets. Animal to animal, species to species and wildlife to human transmission is therefore greatly facilitated by such trade. Although governments are under pressure to implement blanket prohibitions on wildlife trade, massive political and socio economic challenges exist. Through this experience, participants will be able to: ➔ Learn from WWF-Singapore's experts on the risks posed by the hunting, trade and consumption of wildlife to human societies and the measures that can be implemented to reduce the risk of future pandemics. ➔ Lunch and learn, over a plant-based meal experience ➔ Hands-on create a pair of coasters / a pair of carabiners to take-away as reminder to up-cycle in efforts to be mindful about climate change (top-up experience) (>90 participants: S$95 per pax) (80 to 89 participants: S$115 per pax) (70 to 79 participants: S$130 per pax) (60 to 69 participants: S$145 per pax) (Minimum 60 participants to confirm this experience)
