Our images are at once haunting and horrifying. Still, they do not even remotely begin to express the intensity of the tragedy that is being played out daily across Africa's highlands and forests. Most of our photographs are © Karl Ammann. Karl has made it his lifes work to document our killing of of the great apes. His photographs have appeared in books, magazines and scientifc articles all over the world. Please refer to his website, http://karlammann.com, for a wide range of his work since we show only a few here. However, you may click on any for a larger view. We do have high resolution copies suitable for most usage and so if you wish to use them in your bushmeat education/publicity efforts, email us so we can discuss appropriate terms.

This gorilla family was slaughtered for bushmeat -- read "The Other French Connection" for Karl Ammann's gripping first hand account of this tragedy. The photograph was taken in September 1998 in the Pallisco logging concession, Eastern province, Cameroon and appeared in the 5-9-1999 NY Times Magazine. Thousands of these gorillas die like this annually.
