The Bushmeat Crisis, Africa

For the first time, we reveal photos of our field monitoring using undercover methods at key markets in the republic of Congo. Our research reveals that most of illegal bushmeat sold in markets originates from one single region where primary and unprotected rainforest still remains. We estimated about 300 gorillas illegally killed a year for the bushmeat market in the city of Pointe Noire. With your help, we can stop the illegal commercial hunting of endangered species in Central Africa. Photographs Franck Mackoundi and Pierre Fidenci.
