This article is about photographer Benjamin Rutherford's work documenting the bushmeat trade in Zambia:

A web page displaying some of Mr. Rutherford's photos is here:   http://cargocollecti...utherford/NYAMA

 

 

I was sorry to read about the private wildlife conservancy that is selling its game animals, closing, and becoming a farm because of insurmountable poaching.

 

But I was glad to read about a reserve along the Kafue River that was once heavily poached and now is a success story.   Wish they said which reserve it was...
