If you ask me, there are some serious and dangerous trends emerging in the world of conservation and especially for African conservation. These trends are directly related to the rise of the animal rights movement and their nonsensical and unrealistic views of animals, biodiversity and conservation. These organisations profit from the misguided, and deliberately inflamed, emotions of urban dwellers, spurred on by lies and fabrications that are generated by the animal rights organisations themselves.
These organisations profit, to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars, from their lies and misinformation. What is worrying is that very little of this money ever finds it’s way to conservative programs. Instead, it is used to fund further income-generating stunts and programs, enriches their CEOs and staff and all at the expense of Africa’s great wildlife. Of even greater concern, is that a large part of the money, raised by animal rights groups, is used to attack and damage real and working conservation programs.
The animal rights organisations would dismantle successful conservation programs because these programs conflict with their own, ill-formed views about animals. They would replace working programs with their their own, half-baked ideas that, wherever they have been tried, have failed. Kenya’s tragic record on wildlife conservation is a prime example of how animal rights interference, in African conservation, does not work.
If you are concerned with the survival of Africa’s fabulous wildlife, and if you are aware of the fact that the animal liberation and animal rights movement are only interested in making money for themselves and satisfying the misguided emotions of its own members, then you need to think seriously about supporting organisations like the True Green Alliance (TGA).
To save Africa’s biodiversity requires sensible and workable conservation programs; the very programs that the animal rights brigade attack and demonize because their own selfish emotions can’t cope with reality. Providing financial support to any of the pretend wildlife organisations, like the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), The Humane Society and PETA is a total waste of time and money from a conservation point of view. In addition, by funding these organisation, you are actually funding the enemies of African conservation and contributing to the destruction of African biodiversity. They may not see themselves as the enemies of conservation but their policies are most definitely lethal for real conservation.
So, if you want to make a real contribution to African wildlife, then you would be hard-pressed to find a better cause that the TGA. Click on this link, the True Green Alliance, to go to the TGA website where you can make a real and valued contribution to African conservation.
