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...

    Seems the Chinese company signed the agreement 4 years before the reserve was created in 2012...I don't know how the law is applied in Niger but the reserve encroaches the Chinese oil blocks...

    probably the Nigerien government suffers political pressure from the Chinese government and maybe that's the reason why they give the several regions of the reserved area to Chinese businesses

    The sun's blazing temperatures in this desert region is scorching. Yet they drill for oil in Okavango Delta - the only water source that supports the last remaining wild animals. It seems the SWAPO government will not invest in solar energy, but drain it of all it's water and wildlife resources - for that instant 'paycheck/bribe', to satisfy the temporary emotional need, to flash about in fast cars, feathers and finery, while the people have little or nothing, and indigenous wildlife and nature is the cost
