A local woman in southeastern Cameroon prepares a mustached monkey for dinner. Virologists will use blood samples from animals like this, and from human hunters, to analyze to detect and prevent any viruses which might be transferred from animals to humans. Leading the effort is Nathan Wolfe, Director of the Global Virus Forecasting Initiative (GVFI). (Cameroon village names: Ngoila, Messok, Mesock, Zoulabot)
