Abstract

Calls for the regulation of wildlife meat, in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, can overlook the complex motivations of traders and consumers. With research showing that wildlife is an infrequent source of human illness, attempts to tackle the source of zoonotic diseases effectively should consider the broader range of interactions between humans, livestock, wildlife and ecosystems.
