Wildlife partnership launches bushmeat sourcebook 3 March 2015

The Collaborative Partnership on Sustainable Wildlife Management today launched the Bushmeat Sourcebook, an online resource, on the occasion of the second World Wildlife Day. The sourcebook examines bushmeat’s vital contribution to food security, local livelihoods, and other aspects of human well-being in many parts of the world. It also shows, however, how unsustainable harvesting can affect the ecological stability of forest ecosystems, as well as human health. "The sourcebook represents a valuable awareness-raising tool, which will help bring attention to key facts," said Braulio Ferreira de Souza Dias, Chair of the CPW and Executive Secretary of the CBD. "It also shows us how indigenous peoples and local communities can play a positive role in helping to sustainably manage our valuable wildlife resources.
