The Bushmeat IMAP is a multi-year initiative developed in response to an expressed need for a geographic view of the bushmeat crisis. The project makes existing BCTF databases available online, assembles bushmeat-relevant datasets from around the world, and gathers recent data on wildlife and human impacts in the Congo Basin, where the opportunity to change the course of the crisis is greatest.
Bushmeat IMAP Components
Bushmeat Digital Library
Search the BCTF Research Archive of bushmeat-related research, reports and media, plus the BCTF Projects Database.
Interactive Maps of Bushmeat Factors
Search for information, view relationships, and print out custom-built maps on factors contributing to the bushmeat crisis in Central Africa.
Bushmeat Species Information Pages
One of the factors contributing to the bushmeat crisis is the range of species targeted by the trade. 33 mammals known to be hunted and consumed in Central Africa are included in the Interactive Maps tool, and each species has a related information page with links to GIS source data, natural history information, threat status and other relevant links.
