Corey brings out a great point, where are they coming from? I thought they where only found in French Guyana, are they found in other countries?What country are these coming in from? I thought these guys had a pretty limited range that left them in countries that weren't exporting.
WWF: EVALUATION OF THE ANIMAL AND PLANT TRADE IN THE GUIANAS PRELIMINARY FINDINGS 2001 pg 13.
...no commercial wildlife exports in French Guiana to government sanctioned and regulated wildlife trade in Guyana and Suriname with important economic benefits. Guyana and Suriname remain the only two countries in South America still exporting significant quantities of wildlife. Suriname and Guyana derive a significant financial income in hard currency (US dollars) and jobs from the export of fauna and flora (Table 1). Meanwhile, French Guiana has well enforced regulations that prohibit the capture, sale or export of wildlife, and only 12 species are allowed to be used for commercial bush meat purposes (and sale in restaurants.)
