Both Rich and Poor Nations Responsible for Decline in Wildlife — 4 Comments

  1. Very useful article, I share every article of PoC to my facebook so many people can read.

    The situation is really catastrophic, no doubt but in my opinion it is the duty of the state to think and look after these matters and we as public are just toys in the hands of those who should have act with responsibility.

    May God givethem light of positive thoughts, amin.
    What can I say else? ūüôĀ

    • Agreed that individuals cannot conserve wildlife. We can’t beat big business and we can’t beat corrupt governments who work with immoral big business. Together they have a stranglehold over wildlife and they are strangling it to death.

  2. Michael have vivid memories seeing the cheetah in the wild in Nairobi National park in Kenya in 1967 and the tigers in the wild at the “Tadoba National park” in India in 2014.Will future generations have the privilege of seeing wild-life in its natural habitat a few decades from now ?Was shocked to read that almost 50% of our Planets wild-life has been exterminated.Can the same be reversed ?Its a big hope as our human population marches forward in destroying wild habitat by colonising forests and converting the same into villages or farmland.I can write on India that poaching and habitat destruction is the main reason for its wild-life decline. I am no more in touch with African wild-life , having never ever visited a wild-life reserve since 1967 and hence can’t comment on the reasons for its drastic wild-life decline.It would be a holocaust if ultimately wild animals are reduced to just “Zoo specimens” with forest animals totally wiped out beyond a breeding population.Below is a photo of a “Komodo lizard” i clicked at the “Gembira Loka zoo” in Yogyakarta. It was as docile and lethargic as a pet iguana, the result of years of zoo captivity.Hope the wild Komodo dragons on Komodo island exist in their natural habitat, wild and dangerous.

    • Well said. I fear that we are heading towards the catastrophe you describe unless we change our ways very soon which seems highly unlikely. The great iconic animals: elephant, tiger, lion are going to be lost to us in the wild one day.
