Serengeti Highway Compromise Proposed by Famed Scientist

Serengeti Highway Compromise Proposed by Famed Scientist | My Funny Africa.. Bushwhacker anecdotes | Scoop.it

Newark, N.J. — Building an elevated highway across the Serengeti may not sound like the most feasible or wise idea. But that's exactly what Kenyan scientist and conservationist Richard Leakey proposed yesterday (May 14), saying it could be the best solution for humans and wildlife.

 

In Tanzania and Kenya, there has been debate about how to connect the Lake Victoria region and its growing human population with areas to the east. A plan to build a highway connecting the two regions has been hotly contested, because the road would traverse the iconic Serengeti, which is home to some of the world’s most magnificent wildlife and habitat....

Greer Noble's insight:

How unsightly that would be.. and what a field day the workers will have during the years in its construction!!! But at least it's a compromise. Perhaps Dr Leakey could up the anti by including an 'army' of anti poaching game guards?!

Please, let's leave something untouched by humans for our planet's wildlife!

Habitat loss is supposedly the number one threat for many species' survival.

Uganda: Poaching hurting tourism says wildlife minister

Uganda: Poaching hurting tourism says wildlife minister | My Funny Africa.. Bushwhacker anecdotes | Scoop.it

Minister Maria Mutagamba has said poaching by armed and organized criminal syndicates is one of the major challenges facing the ministry....

 

The ministry report shows that the number of tourists coming to Uganda reduced from 207,000 in the year 2011/2012 to only 182,000 in the 2012/2013 financial year.  

She attributed this to the general economic downturn in the world, negative security advisories on Uganda by the source markets (UK, USA, Australia and European Union), the war in Eastern DRC and last year’s outbreak of deadly diseases like Ebola and Marburg...

Millions of Migrating Songbirds Massacred in the Mediterranean

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.

In Egypt, hundreds of miles of nets cover the entire coastline, catching almost every bird that makes its way to shore from across the Mediterranean Sea. In Albania, hunters set up dozens of hunting blinds inside wildlife refuges while officials turn a blind eye.

In Cyprus, trees are outfitted with glue-covered lime sticks that catch birds like flies on flypaper as they attempt to land, breaking wings as the birds struggle to free themselves. The problem is widespread and growing as new methods and technology increase the deadly toll of the annual slaughter.... http://focusingonwildlife.com/news/massive-bird-slaughter-around-the-mediterranean-shocking-photos/
