Working with Logging Companies

Partnerships between conservation organizations and private sector logging companies have proved to be very successful in reducing threats to wildlife.

These partnerships involving logging companies working in the periphery zones of protected areas need to be extended, while strict control of access routes will prevent commercial bushmeat hunting.

In the longer term, all logging companies working in the central African region should be encouraged to participate in internationally recognized certification schemes, which include an obligation to respect and enhance wildlife protection laws.
