#repost @vegan.fem • • • @anon_vegan_guerrilla Protect #wildlife#endangeredspecies #🙏 @natgeo Photo by @CristinaMittermeier In many African countries consumption of bushmeat is commonplace and in places like the island of Bioko, where I photographed this grizzly scene, eating bushmeat is actually a status symbol. The Drill, one of the largest #monkeys on Earth is both rare and #endangered and has a relatively small range. This animal had been shot by a hunter and was being roasted with a torch to be sold for #meat at the market. To me it was horrifying to watch how its once lustrous fur was singed and its limbs chopped off, and how, slowly, this once magnificent animal became just another piece of meat. Known as the \"Kuwait of Africa\" Equatorial Guinea made a lot of money in recent decades from oil exploitation. As its wells dry off, however, the small African nation will hopefully look once again at #tourism as its most viable source of revenue and the parks that today exist only on paper will #hopefully become sanctuaries for these amazing creatures. #follow me at @cristinamittermeier to learn more about conservation.
