BLOOD TIMBER

BLOOD TIMBER TWO From Saturday 18 September (News 24) and from Monday 20 September (BBC World)

The award-winning Earth Report series goes back on the trail of the bushmeat poachers in Central Africa. This time the trail leads to timber companies. Some do practice model environmental safeguards, but even so it seems that once a road is built to get hardwood out, nothing can save the wildlife. One company offers its workers beef at below market prices. Despite measures like this it seems that many people in Central Africa prefer to eat the rapidly vanishing wildlife. In this part of the world elephants are more menaced by demand for their meat than their ivory.

OLD GROWTH AND GORILLAS From Saturday 25 September (News 24) and From Monday 27 September (BBC World)

The BBC's Anita McNaught leads a debate on the issues raised by Earth Report's coverage of forestry and wildlife in Africa and other tropical countries. Convened at the British House of Commons, the debate attracted high level participants from conservation organisations and the timber industry. Some of the more conservative environmental groups are accused of appeasing the timber companies. A Ugandan participant says that Africa would be better off if the international groups pulled out and the resources they consume are left to indigenous NGOs to use.
