EndPandemics (https://endpandemics.earth) is a global alliance and action campaign that strives to reduce the risks of pandemics by addressing the root causes of zoonotic outbreaks – commercial wildlife trade, disruption of wild habitats, and wildlife dependence of poverty-affected livelihoods. The alliance was launched in April 2020 and comprises a fast-growing array of organizations (presently over 60) that operate across five continents in conservation, agriculture, climate, health, business, technology, security, media, and other sectors.
