    Jeff Fuckzoss, tesla dickhead, whoever spend their millions for BULLSHIT, they can do something for the planet! Just a little more than a million dollars, all they need is that for those parks.... That is microscopic money for such people! They even gave 10ox more for his ex-wife !

    Maybe they should look at the impact the cattle are having before they remove the wildlife.

    Africans cannot be trusted to manage themselves, their administrations or their environment in this modern world. Rapid human population growth on the continent, coupled with deforestation, desertification and the systemic corruption, maladministration and nepotism in all sub-Saharan Governments, gives wildlife very little chance.

    I think the animals should have their freedom too!!! It's just like "If you stay here you will die so we have to sell you" said by government to the animals 🙂🙂🙂 how friendly they are
