Killing, Capture, Trade and Ape Conservation: Volume 4, Hardback Book

Killing, Capture, Trade and Ape Conservation: Volume 4 Hardback

Edited by Arcus Foundation

Part of the State of the Apes series



The illegal trade in live apes, ape meat and body parts occurs across all ape range states and poses a significant and growing threat to the long-term survival of wild ape populations worldwide.

What was once a purely subsistence and cultural activity, now encompasses a global multi-million-dollar trade run by sophisticated trans-boundary criminal networks.

The challenge lies in teasing apart the complex and interrelated factors that drive the ape trade, while implementing strategies that do not exacerbate inequality.

This volume of State of the Apes brings together original research and analysis with topical case studies and emerging best practices, to further the ape conservation agenda around killing, capture and trade.
