CEO Outlines Possibilities for Positive Outcome in World-Renowned National Park Debate


ARUSHA, Tanzania, June 24, 2011 -- Some conservationists are declaring a partial victory today as the Government of Tanzania announced that it is not constructing the proposed tarmac road that would have dissected the Serengeti, affecting the migration habits of hundreds of thousands of wildebeest, antelope, and zebra. The African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) is pleased with the evolution, but stresses there are still many critical aspects of the ongoing development that need to be addressed.

The wild savages can't wait for us to leave Afghanistan so they can run rampant across the country and spread like a disease everywhere else. 

Marissa Roy's curator insight, November 19, 2013 10:37 AM

The countries including and surrounding Afghanistan are severely worried about what will happen to them after the US troops withdraw in 2014. They feel as though there is still no political stability and that the minute the forces leave, the door will be open to terrorism and drug trafficking. These Central Asian countries can also not come to terms on a solution for protection after 2014. The most vulnerable countries are Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan, and they fear terrorist rule the most, as the share a common border with Afghanistan. There is much uncertainity and fear on this part of the world. They need to come up with a common plan for protection as soon as possible to prepare.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Tragically, just 10 days after this video was recorded, Tim Samaras died in an Oklahoma tornado, along with his son Paul, who shot this video, and Carl Young, a frequent partner of Tim's. Read here for more on his death. And click here for a compilation of Tim's videos on National Geographic.
