  • TRAFFIC - Wildlife Trade News - New analysis sounds alarm over scale of bushmeat trade in Central Africa
    of Useful links TRAFFIC is not responsible for the content of external internet sites WWF IUCN CITES More Friday Oct 16 2009 New analysis sounds alarm over scale of bushmeat trade in Central Africa Bushmeat market Makokou Gabon Click photo to enlarge Natalie van Vliet TRAFFIC en Français Cambridge UK 16 October 2009 New analytical techniques have revealed that the scale of bushmeat trade in Central Africa may be much larger than originally thought according to a study published today by TRAFFIC the wildlife trade monitoring network The study based on an analysis of food balance sheets provided by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization s statistical database FAOSTAT strongly supports the view that the current situation surrounding bushmeat hunting in Central African rainforests is precarious According to the analysis bushmeat extraction rose considerably in the Congo Basin between 1990 and 2005 despite the overall decrease in forest cover in Central Africa Cameroon appears to be exceeding by more than 100 an estimated sustainable offtake of 150 kg of game meat per square kilometre of forest and Gabon and the Republic of Congo are both close to this limit The greatest rise in bushmeat production was in the Democratic Republic of Congo where the yield rose from 78 000 tonnes in 1990 to 90 000 tonnes in 2005 In the Republic of Congo production almost doubled from 11 000 to 20 000 tonnes per year in the same time period While the FAOSTAT bushmeat data are probably underestimates and should be regarded with caution the data are the most readily available official sources of information on production of wild meat in the Congo Basin and are valuable indicators of bushmeat production and consumption trends says Stefan Ziegler Programme Officer with WWF Germany and author of the report Wildlife is a significant and direct source of protein for more than 34 million people living in the Congo Basin and bushmeat hunting is a key component of many peoples livelihoods in Central Africa Earlier studies have demonstrated that bushmeat extraction increases with human population growth However the latest study finds that bushmeat consumption increases significantly with personal wealth too Bushmeat consumption is higher in countries with large urban populations and the increasing urbanization in the Congo region is likely to place even greater pressure on wild animal populations there says Ziegler The danger is unsustainable offtake of wild game will lead to a collapse in wild animal populations and widespread human hunger in the region says Ziegler Unsustainable harvest levels are widely believed to be the most immediate threat to the region s forest mammals Local people have hunted for centuries for food and for barter but the last 20 years have seen the emergence of a commercial bushmeat market due to rural people being increasingly drawn into the cash economy says Nathalie van Vliet TRAFFIC Bushmeat Strategic Advisor The impacts of subsistence hunting was previously balanced by the fact of the hunting was done on a rotation basis on alternate tracts
