Our investigations have shown how chimpanzees, along with other endangered species, are being hunted commercially on a daily basis. The meat, which is sold at prices above that of farmed species, is supplied to workers in logging concessions and distributed widely to markets in towns and cities. The growth of logging in this region has opened access to previously inaccessible areas and has been the main contributory factor in enabling this trade to flourish.
