Detailed Information:
This year hunters supported by the timber industry will illegally shoot and butcher more than 2,000 gorillas and 4,000 chimpanzees in the forest region of west and central Africa. The Bushmeat Project has been established to plan and implement an international programme of community based partnerships that will help the people of Cameroon, Congo, Gabon, Central African Republic, and Zaire to stop the slaughter of the great apes and to develop alternatives to endangered bushmeat.
