Bushmeat hunting, negative recreation impacts 2 most common problems in PAs worldwide: study

Protected areas across the world are most threatened by unsustainable resource use and human disturbance, a new study has found.

The authors of this paper, published this week in Conservation Letters, looked at data from nearly 2,000 terrestrial protected areas to identify the most common threats they face. Unsustainable hunting and negative impacts from recreational activities were the most commonly reported threats by protected area managers, occurring in 61% and 55% of all protected areas considered in the study.
