What’s Right?

Posted by in Elephants, Hunting

Problem is Scott Olmstead, the North American model of conservation does not apply to Africa. And unfortunately when all of us intervene in Africa (conservationists as well), we all influence the management of Africa’s resources. That means you and me and there is much debate about that and much to consider in our efforts. I believe every hunter has the right to hunt. What needs to be considered is reverence for a dwindling and endangered species. To be examined at this time are the repercussions for hunting an animal such…read more

Put The Judiciary to Work.

Posted by in Conservation

Appeals to improperly sentenced wildlife trafficking cases have the power to create change. Kenya has done it, now Uganda. What we need are “wildlife enforcement legal teams” hired by the head of state to review all current (and perhaps recently closed) cases of wildlife sentencing in county and other courts. They obtain and review current docket of wildlife incidents and cases to determine if the rulings are/were indeed proper.

Elephant Attack in Kruger National Park.

This poor elephant was deemed unusually aggressive and killed because of this unfortunate circumstance by park authorities. Clearly from the video, he…read more

A Stunning Leopard Speaks.

Hard to refute the reality of telepathy and communication capabilities that we have with the animal kingdom if we allow and recognize it. Reminds me to always be careful how we speak about and to our animals in their presence. If you love animals or have a pet, a must watch. Thank you Terry Lamb for sharing this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=gvwHHMEDdT0

Me First.

Posted by in Conservation, Kenya, Poaching, Wildlife

Yes I will admit I am still naive on Kenya’s wildlife issues, not because I haven’t dedicated the time to read or research about them, but simply because I am not yet there to get my “arms” around the situation and understand the politics of what is truly taking place. That will happen soon enough and a wise person knows that this is absolutely essential to understanding any real state of affairs. But perhaps being able to be away from the fire so to speak has its advantages. Within a…read more
