Illegal Hunting and the Bushmeat Trade in Central Mozambique. A Case-study from Coutada 9, Manica Province




The illegal trade in bushmeat represents a severe conservation threat in several African countries. Using the Coutada 9 safari hunting area as a case-study, this report attempts to assess the drivers, scale and impacts of the bushmeat trade in Central Mozambique and to determine the extent to which illegal hunting is limiting the development of sustainable wildlife-based tourism. Structured questionnaire surveys were designed for stakeholders involved in anti-poaching, illegal hunting and the sale of bushmeat, and illegal hunting statistics were collected from game scout report forms.
