The Serengeti Highway - A MAJOR Disaster!

Is this how you want to view wildlife in Serengeti??
The proposed northern highway across Serengeti (see blog post below) will result in a major increase in poaching in the region that is now difficult to access. Tanzania National Parks is re-introducing black rhinos in this region with plans for up to 32 rhinos in the next few years.
This is how they will end up!
Serengeti is a World Heritage Site.
If this highway goes through, it may be re-classified as an Endangered World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Don't let this happen. Email Tanzania National Parks: info@tanzaniaparks.com
Also email the Tanzanian Embassy in Washington: ubalozi@tanzaniaembassy-us.org
Get involved to save the greatest animal migration on earth!

  5. The doctrine of right livelihood teaches Buddhists to avoid any work connected with the killing of animals The doctrine of karma teaches that any wrong behaviour will have to be paid for in a future life - so cruel acts to animals should be avoided Buddhists treat the lives of human and non-human animals with equal respect Buddhists see human and non-human animals as closely related.

    Putting oneself in the place of the other, Let no one kill nor cause another to kill. Dhammapada 129.
