Millions of Migrating Songbirds Massacred in the Mediterranean | My Funny Africa.. Bushwhacker anecdotes | Scoop.it

JULY 24, 2013 - FOCUSING ON WILDLIFE

Each year, millions of songbirds are killed for food, for profit or just for the joy of shooting something, as they move from their winter grounds in Africa to their summer breeding territories in Europe.

Come on Kenya, set an example to the rest of Africa - send a strong message to the rest of the world too by having super strict controls at airports and border posts and far more stringent punishment for possession of ivory, lion claws and rhino horn . These culprits from the East are ruining your tourist trade and perpetuating the slaughter of elephant , lion and rhino!
