Peru's Highway of Dreams Zoom In 4

Bush-Meat Baby
Photograph by Maria Stenzel

A hunter for a mahogany logging camp on Rio Los Amigos holds a one-month-old howler monkey that was captured after its mother was killed for meat. Some conservationists believe that the collateral impacts of these camps on the forest—such as hunting for bush meat or warring with indigenous communities—may pose a greater threat than logging.
