Regions Affected

In the 1990's, the bushmeat trade reached crisis levels in Central Africa, but with large international investment since 2000, there is reason for hope. By the same time period, West Africa had already been hit hard and today there are few pockets of large mammals remaining; the degree of threat in East and Southern Africa is still being established.

Worldwide, 'bushmeat' is part of wildlife trade in Asia and Latin America, and exports to North America and Europe are a growing concern.
