Signed! And remember, often the poachers are just impoverished people trying to make a few bucks to survive. The true sons of *itches are the restaurant owners and patrons who think it's "chic" to have bushmeat on the menu. Give local people some kind of "stipend" for protecting the forest and the resulting peer pressure can reduce poaching.

Until the poverty which enables bush meat trade is eradicated, it WILL continue!

These petitions are well-meaning but they will NOT be effective when human poverty is eased by the sale of bush meat.

Expand training and start up for organic farming so people will be fed. Heifer International has many good programs with giving livestock, bees, seeds, animal husbandry classes, and more! A person can give a gift or share of an animal to sustain the family. The family in turn then is to give a gift of an offspring to someone else, perpetuating the gift.

Bush meat is also smuggled into other countries. It has been found in restaurants in UK and Belgium and probably others as well.
