    Abstract

    The bushmeat trade in the Congo basin is one of the foremost threats to the great apes of Africa today. Chimpanzees, bonobos, eastern, western, cross river and mountain gorillas are all highly endangered species who are looking at extinction as a definite possibility. However, many different factors are contributing to this. Many people would say that hunting these animals is just wrong, and immoral. In the end though there are many different factors to consider in order to truly understand this situation because it is not only a environmental problem, but a human problem as well.
