“Not a Pet” Campaign

The campaign, dubbed “Not A Pet,” shines a much-needed spotlight on the illegal trade of live wild animals sold as pets in the United States while also highlighting the risk of disease emergence, spill over, and spread caused by the legal and illegal live exotic pet trade. The initiative aims to connect with potential owners of exotic pets to help them understand the risks to animal and human health and the specialized and expensive care required for these wild animals.
