The below isn’t an easy read, but it is thought-provoking, really quite shocking and probably not being talked about enough right now.
Whether it’s the truth or not, it is more than likely that the virus stemmed from illegal poaching and wildlife trafficking- and that’s something we should all be thinking about.

Well said by amazing photographer @paulhiltonphoto #regram: People keep asking where this virus 🦠 CoVid -19 came from. Right now, as far as the science goes, we’ve had a 90% match from a corona virus carried by a pangolin, that mostly likely contacted from a bat 🦇. Imagine a pangolin eating termites under a dead log, where bats are roosting, it then picks up the virus 🦠, then comes along a poacher picks it up and puts it in a sack, then sends it off to market. It’s then killed, by a market trader, in the process he or she gets a bit of blood 🩸 in their eye. Fast forward to the present day. It’s time to leave other species alone and to start respecting the planet a little more. All these species provide ecosystem services for the planet, that helps sustain the web of life, that keeps us alive. #Respectnaure #banthesnare #photographersagainstwildlifecrime #cutconflictpalmoil
