Wildlife consumption in China

In Conservation and Biology, an article on wildlife consumption in China

Although attitudes are changing towards a recognition that wildlife should not be consumed, there has been little change in wildlife consumption in China:

“An attitudinal survey on wildlife consumption and conservation awareness was conducted in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Kunming and Nanning of China recently. Comparison with the results from a similar survey we did in 2004, after 8 years, the proportion of respondents who had consumed wildlife was dropped slightly from 31.3 % down to 29.6 %. I

The results also showed that 52.7 % agreed that wildlife should not be consumed, which was significantly increased comparison with the survey result of 42.7 % in 2004.

Consumers with higher income and higher educational background were having higher wildlife consumption rate”.
