Wayne Morra, professor of economics, published “Long-Term Urban Market Dynamics Reveal Increased Bushmeat Carcass Volume despite Economic Growth and Proactive Environmental Legislation on Bioko Island, Equatorial Guinea” in July in the online journal Plos One.

For more than a decade, Morra and co-authors tracked the growing bushmeat trade in the town of Malabo in Equatorial Guinea. In the article, they reveal a correlation between the island’s GDP and the quantity of bushmeat sold in Malabo markets and make recommendations for improved conservation in the central African nation.
