Trading and eating wildlife is inhumane. It is potentially life threatening and contributes to the loss of endangered species. East Asia is believed to be major routes in the animal smuggling trade. These animals are frequently sold alive in local food markets throughout Asia.

Mytheast has been acknowledged by The Hong Kong Trade Development Council, a statutory body in the public service in Hong Kong. We are dedicated to promoting the ban on trading and eating wildlife, cat and dog meat in East Asia and elsewhere. We connect and share the ideas of animal rights and veganism with many political and business leaders around the world.

Wild animals should be left in the wild. They are not food! The wildlife trading market is cruel and inhumane. This is s disgusting practice that needs to be stopped right now!

Mary Potter

Animals don't deserve to be treated this way. Wildlife doesn't belong anywhere but into the wild. Human doesn't have the right to consume other species. All wildlife markets should be closed now.  

David Lee

Once a species becomes extinct, we can never get it back. Our next generation will be the sufferer. I am signing because of myself, our earth as well as our children. I don't want to leave a bad future to them.

Also, we will produce a series of publications on veganism and animal rights. If you want to participate in producing the publications, you are welcome to share your messages, stories, ideas or articles.
