Assessment Of Recent Bushmeat Research And Recommendations To Her Majesty’s Government - WC05009

Bushmeat is a complex issue, with no precise definition, bushmeat, but it is generally understood to mean the meat of wild animals hunted for food.

Ministers sitting on the Inter-Departmental Ministerial Group on Biodiversity (IMGB) have requested further information to inform their discussions about HMG policy on the bushmeat trade. Ministers are particularly interested in its effects on endangered species and the livelihoods of the poor in producing countries.
