This article is about how the West African lions are decreasing as they are killed by local people and poachers. There are only about 250 adult lions left in West Africa and are still being killed by Trophy Hunters.
As I was looking through articles about Africa, there were a lot of articles about how some animals are close to extinction. Most of the suspects are Trophy Hunters and poachers.
It is sad how lions have nowhere to go as people cut down trees and hunt wildlife. People kill them for killing their livestock. Russians already took action to invest money for their Siberian tigers, which are now doing better. To help the West African lions, we should create similar projects like what this article said.
Tippi Degre is a 23 years old French girl who had a very unique childhood. She was born in Africa and lived in the wild until the age of ten, when she went back to France. She was a girl who we can call the real-life Mowgli character in 'Jungle Book'. She had believed that all the animals were her size and her friends. Almost all of the animals were her friends, including elephants, cheetahs, giant bullfrogs, ostriches, snakes, zebras, mongoose, lion cubs and crocodiles. She was a close friend with them; even the ostrich wouldn't move at all when Tippi was sitting on her, afraid that she would make the child fall. She also grew up among the native tribe of Namibia. She was taken under their wings and taught her all sorts of survival techniques of wildlife. She could speak their language and could live like them.
By looking at this article, I can see how the wild animals can be beautiful creatures to humans. Animals that are noted to be a harm to people can interact with people too. People should stop killing animals in Africa just because they are dangerous or because they can be sold in high price. I’ve always wanted to live with wild animals because I also believe that all animals can be well interacted with humans just like Tippi Degre. I’ve always wanted to prove to people who are scared of animals that the animals can be your best friends. But because Tippi Degre already proved it to some people, I should start telling people near me how animals are friendly.
Although slavery is no longer legal there are still millions of people living in slavery today. One place and industry where slaves still exist is the cocoa ...
The world's leading producer of cocoa is Côte d'Ivoire and dirty secret is that slavery is commonplace on cocoa plantations in West Africa. Children are smuggled from countries such as Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso and then are placed on remote, isolated plantations. While statistics are all guesstimates, this video is purporting that 35% of the world's chocolate is produced by slave labor (I've seen higher estimates). What factors lead to this horrific condition? How is this a geographic issue?
This article is about children trafficking and child labor in West Africa. The director of this documentary is trying to tell people around the world that almost all famous chocolate factories such as Snickers, Nestle, etc, use cocoa from the cocoa plantations in Ivory Coast that use child labor to make as much chocolate they can with the least amount of money used. There are serious issues going on in West Africa, because most cocoa plantation workers are children who were smuggled around many countries such as Mali, Niger, and Burkina Faso and were separated to isolated plantations. People who are working in the Cocoa Industry have all denied the fact that the children are working in the plantation; Even the Vice President of Ivory Coast denied the fact of children trafficking. Also, all the famous chocolate factories had declined the interview for this documentary. A lot of people around the village have helped the captured children escape back to their home, saving more than a hundred children. This article helped me understand more about Africa's bad economy. By using child trafficking, people get free workers as well as sell children; 230 Euros each. It costs less to buy children than to pay the workers. This article made me realize that the only way I could help the African children is to spread the awareness to the whole wide world. This article also made me want to go to Ivory Coast when I get older. Children Trafficking hurts my loving heart and I would go to Ivory Coast and help children go back to their home.
This article is about the Lake Natron in northern Tanzania and is the most serene lake in Africa. The alkaline water in Lake Natron has a pH as high as 10.5 and is so caustic it can burn the skin and eyes of animals that aren't adapted to it. The deposits of sodium carbonate, which was once used in the Egyptian mummification, acts as a type of preservative for those unlucky animals that have died. While working, Africa Photographer, Nick Brandt, discovered dead animals on the shoreline. I never knew there was these kinds of lakes or rivers in Africa. This river does not drain in or out of any river or sea, and they are fed by hot springs and small rivers. In a hot climate, this lake can be up to 106 degrees Fahrenheit. I think it is very cool how there were such places in Africa because I thought there's only deserts and countries and cities, not like these abandoned places. It is very sad how animals die and it is really cool how the animals can survive when they are adapted to it. The things that were used from a long time ago can still harm people and environment these days so we should watch those out.
This article is about the child soldiers in Africa. The children are forced to be in the army. Before they are taken, Africans kill their family or make them kill their own families. Africans force the children to drug so that they don't feel pain, and also teach them how to kill people with no fear. This article adds on to my knowledge to my last week's article about how economy plays a role on child labor and how serious the problem is in Africa today. Child soldier is another type of child labor. This also tell me that there are a lot of conflicts in Africa and the children are involved in those conflicts. I feel very thankful for the good environment that I'm living in. I am very glad that I'm not one of those unfortunate children in Africa. I do not know how I can be a help to this problem except spreading awareness.
This article is about how rhinos in Africa are endangered. Before I read this article, I was unaware of this problem. After reading this article, I realized how serious this problem was. I think this is a big problem because if rhinos go extinct, it disturbs the food chain, eventually harm us. To solve this, people in South Africa and other countries should take care of these animals so that their race will be preserved.
