Eating and conserving bushmeat in Africa

Wilkie DS
et al
November 2016

In this review, the authors examine the actors involved in the use of wildlife as food and discuss the possible solutions required to address urban and rural bushmeat consumption. They argue that interventions must tackle use and conservation of wildlife through the application of context-relevant interventions. Though, they note that for any bushmeat solution to work there must be investment in strengthening the effectiveness of protected area management and enforcement of wildlife conservation laws
