Communitails PH presents the second episode of FYI: Fur Your Information: Saving Wildlife Will Save Us
Everywhere around the world, wild animals are captured from their habitats for a variety of reasons—including keeping them as pets and using them as food. These practices increase the risk of transmission of zoonotic diseases from wild animals to humans. A One Health perspective looks into the importance of animal health as a crucial factor in the matter of public health in human civilization.
