Isn’t it enough?

“A heavily armed gang have killed an unknown number of elephants at a world heritage site in the Central African Republic (CAR). WWF says that ivory poachers were seen using a scientist’s observation platform to shoot the animals who gather there in large numbers.”

“We know that there was a lot of Kalashnikov fire over the last couple of days, and into the night,” said Dr Anna Feistner from WWF who has been based in the area for the past three years. “We now know the guys have left – Our belief is that elephants have been killed but we don’t yet know the scale.”

Seriously! How did they get access to the observation platform? Shouldn’t people be on watch or something? And all we get from The head of Cites and The Secretary-General of the Conventional on the Trade in Endangered Species (Cites) is little more than a verbal shrug! How about you take some action for a change! Your job security (I.E. your survival) is irrevocably linked to their survival. I imagine looking for another job (you know, when there are no animals left) would be difficult seeing as how employers want people who can actually get things done. I can just see the interview now, “I don’t see any animals. Do you?”


About D.Dinius

I am big on education, animals, and nature. So following that sentence I think it's important to be smart and animals and nature bring clarity and a calmness to things. I am new to actually paying attention and having opinions. This has been building well for about the last year. :)
