The unfortunate reality is that African predators are endangered. The population of various such species has drastically declined and their habitat has significantly decreased. Some species are taken into custody and relocated to protected areas -areas that act as islands in an ocean of humanity. The original coexistence between man and animal in Africa is crumbling and at quite a fast pace. The cause of this is man’s supremacy through firearms and technology. Moreover, the recurrent conflict between the territories and habitats of man and animal are making coexistence hard to achieve.
Our planet is facing a sixth destruction. Because of human activity, man is in the midst of inducing a drastic decline or even an extermination of various species that are part of a versatile eco system. In terms of the purity of nature, species diversity, and environmental destruction, Africa will be the biggest loser, especially considering its high population increase and constantly changing and controversial politics. However, it is not only Africa’s people that must do something about this; we all must take full intellectual and moral responsibility for the deterioration of Africa’s wildlife.
Man has changed the earth immensely these past few generations. Thousands of plants and animals were not able to adapt so quickly, and thus they became extinct.
The Kalahari Predator Conservation Trust helps to survive predators in the wilderness of preservations like Kalahari and Okavango. At the same time, the foundation maintains species diversity. Due to the very high proportion of local employees in our projects and research work, we can integrate more people in nature and thus ensure the sustainability of projects.
