Bushmeat

Anything that moves is  “bushmeat,” monkey and gorilla its delicacies. This lucrative illegal underground trade turns traditional hunters into commercial ones catering to the loggers whose meat consumption is three times that of locals.  Simultaneously deforestation of these diverse eco-systems exposes unexplored areas and unknown species, amongst them dangerous pathogens. These microbes and parasites infest the bushmeat resulting in viral outbreaks. And when endangered species become meals, and pets, as status symbols, extinction of the exotic is imminent. The barbarism of bushmeat isn’t only about the ignoramus dining on gorillas hands, but involves disappearing forests, global warming, human (pygmies) and animal rights violations, species extinction, and viral threats which are more likely to end our Anthropocene era than terrorist or nuclear ones.                            —Candace Scharsu  2014
