[en] The aim of this study was to do surveys about bush
meat networks around urban centers near the Monte
Alen National Park in Equatorial Guinea. During 8
weeks, in the Mundoasi market, one of two principal
market of Bata, 4328 wild animal carcases have been
indexed, representating 22,600 kg of biomass. A total
of 48 animals species have been identified, including
14 which hunting are prohibited. The mammals represent
91.87% of total number with 3 dominants orders,
ungulates (37.7%), primates (28.6%) and rodents
(18%). The duiker (Cephalophus), the African Brushtailed
Porcupine and Guenon are the most important.
The district of Niefang, Bata and Evinayong are the
principal sources of supply. Hunting with gun becomes
very important, follow by snaring, a very wasteful
method. Despite that this business squarely growth,
signs of wildlife decrease are perceptible, showing
evidence of overexploitation. As far as Monte Alen
National Park is concerned, this study shows the positive
effects of this protected area as wildlife reservoir
for peripheral hunting zones.
