Niger's huge biodiversity reserve is under threat

This is one of Africa's largest nature reserves and one of the last bastions of Saharan wildlife, but it may lose almost half of its area to oil development...

    What will it take for humans to realize that we as a species have totally destroyed this home of ours and we are still constantly doing it. There is no heaven or hell as we have created hell right here with our destructive ways

    I've worked in the oil and gas industry for 14 years and can assure you that wildlife pays no mind to traffic. In fact I've seen more game on oil leases than any public land or otherwise. They're protected there because there is no hunting or fishing on lease land. You're doing a disservice to the public with garbage posts like this. Misinformation is the number one reason this country is filled with division. Without oil and gas your daily life would revert back to the 18th century. It would not be fun...
