A PASSIONATE READ

A must-read article from Kenya’s Standard newspaper regarding poaching in Kenya, highlighting the fact that Kenya must take responsibility for their burgeoning poaching pandemic as opposed to placing all blame on China and looking to foreign intervention and gadgets.

“So if we want to exterminate poaching, let’s stop allowing foreign researchers to think for us. Let’s stop dreaming about deploying drones and camera traps. Let’s stop blaming the Chinese. Instead, let’s ask ourselves why our rangers suddenly seem incapable of beating the crap out of poachers.”
