Do you know this?

  • There are more than five thousands of civets are caged in Vietnam for wildlife trade, and part of it was for civet coffee
  • Wild civets are being captured to sustain civet farms?
  • Civets are forced to eat coffee fruits to produce expensive shitty coffee and many of them died because of that?
  • There is a link between your cup of civet coffee and zoonotic disease outbreaks?
We have conducted first study specified in impacts of civet (coffee) farms in Vietnam, with more than 50 civet farms in two provinces in Vietnam were interviewed. This microsite is one of our project outputs, which aims to raise awareness of consumers who use civet coffee, civet meat or any medicines originated from civets of certain impacts and threats that they could make to the civet populations and public health.

Civet farms in Vietnam

  • In Vietnam, commercial civet farming for their meat and for civet coffee is legal but is it safe to civets and to people?
  • Above 60% of interviewed farms reported trading in wild-caught civets to re-stock their farms
  • Many reported civets dying prematurely and nearly 50% of these cited disease as a major reason. Civets are known to be vulnerable to zoonoses such as H5N1.
  • Less than 10 % of the enclosures were of an acceptable minimal standard for animal welfare and the civets are kept in cruel and unethical conditions

All civets deserve freedom and welfare in nature!

 The secretive nature mammal
Civets are small mammals native to Asia and Africa. Wild civets are one of the least studied mammals, due to their nocturnal lifestyle and secretive nature.
Wild civets are captured using cruel methods, including box traps, snares and hunting with dogs. They are frequently injured during capture and likely to experience extreme stress through human handling.
A variety of different civet species are used to produce civet coffee, some of which are already under threat of extinction

 What the facts?

Due to the high demand of civet coffee, many wild civets were caught and locked up in the farm which greatly affecting the civet population in the wild; many civet species are almost extinct (like Owston’s civet, Large-spotted’s civet, Binturong…) Civets were confined in cramped spaces, lacking animal welfare. Many individual animals live in panic and suffer both of mentally and physically. The quality of captivity condition is not guaranteed that entails the chance for disease spreading
Is it worth? The taste of civet coffee is not better than the others
but you have to pay a very high cost

Diseases from Civets?

Animals, especially wild animals, are hosts to many different bacteria, viruses, and parasites that can cause diseases, a lot of which can infect humans, and can even cause pandemics. Those diseases are scientifically known as Zoonoses. Zoonoses are very popular among humans; scientists estimate that 6 out of 10 diseases found on humans originated from other animals, and for every 4 newly discovered diseases, 3 are from other animals, especially wild animals.

What’s the next pandemic if you consume civet products?
