Kenya: Wildlife and Dreams of Thailand

The new scourge in Kenya is ” animals are suffering”. Kenyan wildlife is being exported to Thailand! African Bullets and Honey has some dreams around this subject. “From the slopes of Mt Kenya to the palm trees of Lamu, I dream that this land will be emptied of its detritus of selfish humans who have transformed an oasis of noble beasts into a desert sweltering with the rot of poaching and tourism. My friends, I have a dream that our apes, fauna and snakes will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their hides or the texture of their scales, but by the amount of conservation funding they attract to our shores. I have a dream today. By any means necessary”.
