Wrapped discreetly in plastic bags, shipments of bushmeat arrive clandestinely at ports like this one, in Tabatinga, Brazil, where vendors pick them up to sell in markets here where the borders of Colombia, Brazil and Peru converge. Because laws in the three countries prohibit the small-scale commercialization of bushmeat, hunters, traders and customers use cell phones to arrange pickups and deliveries.
