Karl Ammann is a wildlife photographer and conservation activist. He led a campaign on the bushmeat crisis in Africa that gained worldwide recognition. He is co-author of two very important books: Eating Apes which documents the history and present status of the Bushmeat trade, and Consuming Nature about the exploitation of African rainforests, again with a focus on the bushmeat trade. Both titles are illustrated with his photos. Karl is a founder member of the International League of Conservation Photography, initiated at the World Wilderness Congress in September 2005, and for five consecutive years he won the World In our Hands category in the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year award.
