CIFOR Bushmeat Research Initiative

The website brings together decades of research on the sustainable management of wildlife, with a particular focus on hunting in the tropical forests of the Congo Basin and the Amazon.

The new site builds on the work of the Bushmeat Research Initiative (BRI) and the Collaborative Partnership on Sustainable Wildlife Management (CPW) to create a comprehensive resource for journalists, researchers, policy makers, students and the general public.

The latest publications and research findings on bushmeat are presented together with news from the field, as well as a suite of multimedia products, including animation, videos and photo essays. Researchers are encouraged to add their own findings to the Interactive Bushmeat Database and Data Map, joining a global community of practice on bushmeat.
