IGNORANT TOURISTS DISTURBING ANIMALS IN THE WILDS:

The African wilds draw millions of tourists each year who visit these untamed tracts to get a firsthand view of the great variety of wildlife.

In the bargain, the governments of Africa make millions out of these tours into the wilds.

This safari tourism is damaging to the eco-balance and the hordes of tourists, mainly White, are loud, brash, ignorant and highly emotional and besides the jeeps that take them deep into the jungles are noisy and polluting.

All this must stop and the forests and wildlife reserves must be declared out of bounds to gawking tourists.

The WWF, UNESCO, NG and other organizations must put on added pressure on the African governments to end tourist forays into the wilds and adequate compensatory funds should be handed over to the African authorities to ensure that this human predatory menace ceases.

The wilds should be left undisturbed and animals and tribes inhabiting the wilds should be given space to flourish as they have been doing over thousands of years.

People are part of the environment too, and if the tourist industry fizzled, the park protection and local economy would fizzle as well.

Where is the data that the tourism is damaging? I would like to read the studies.

How do you define eco-balance? How do you operationalize this construct? How do you measure this?

Reversal of a ban on safari tourism is always undertaken due to monetary considerations and big names having a vested interest in eco-tourism use bribes and political influence to overthrow well thought out bans into forested ares or into protected reserves.

Keeping wild animals in zoos and in circuses should also be banned with immediate effect. I can't bear to see tigers, lions, leopards, apes, deer, bears, peacocks, crocs and other faunal forms trapped in zoos and confined to cages in circuses.

Tourists may be permitted on the outskirts of forests and animal sanctuaries but the core areas in the forests and sanctuaries should be out of bounds for these tourists.

I am unconcerned about the loss of livelihood of those engaged in forest tourism. If a ban comes into effect, these workers should seek employment elsewhere. Governments should be well compensated to put a stop to wildlife tourism and affected workers resettled in other occupations.

In the 5 star hotels, too, in India and abroad, I have seen the White guests misbehaving, talking too loudly, fumbling in intelligent conversation, lacking poise and having little or zero knowledge about refined table etiquette. I have seen some old-moneyed Whites behaving exactly in the same crude manner and lacking incisive views on subjects of importance and having as less knowledge about the finer table etiquette as their nouveau riche and middle class White fellows. Riff raff.

Other crude habits that most Whites have while sitting in fine restaurants are - placing their elbows on the table top, being too animated during conversation and/or leaning over while talking.

Then quit whining and go out and volunteer for your local humane society. There is a world of good that could be accomplished if you would just learn how to channel yourself.

BTW most zoos only accept animals who no longer can live in the wild, or are bred for conservation purposes. I agree about circuses though.

a lot of personal opinion and absolutely no data that ecotourism is harmful. Show me the studies or quit your whining.

And in a perfect world we would all be well cared for and singing kumbya together all the time.

Fact is, that many of those workers in previous employment were poachers. If thats what you want them to return to, what will you be left to conserve?

and this has to do with ecotourism impacts because?

Lets put the cards out on the table. Besides from being egocentric and illogical, you are misanthropic as well.

I have NEVER encountered people who lie and deceive like them not even among SECULAR people.
Poor very very poor nazi propaganda but if u and ur kind love it go ahead and do it. Poor assaholas of the worst kind.

HughBe--- Speaking about NAZI are you an AshkeNAZI? If so it explains why you see NAZI where none exists. Part of my roots go via Sephardic and I guess that such people are a bother to people like you.

Having said that I stand by my words as they have been constantly proven that Eric and his kind are LIARS and DECEIVERS. I shall also say that YOU are a LIAR and the evidence is in your words above.


Uzi--- Poor assaholas of the worst kind.

HughBe--- Your obsession and preoccupation with "assaholas" is understood and no doubt it is natural to you but is unnatural to me.

Let us reason together. How does a mother make someone a Jew?

How does someone lose his or her Jewish identity because they embrace Christianity?

Uzi---Long live the democtatic State of Israel and the rest of you go eat shiat.

HughBe---Tell me the meaning of democratic. I have NO objection to the existence of Israel as a state and my guess is that of the over 2 BILLION Christians including Jews very very few have an objection to its existence.

Do you have members of Judaism who are opposed to the existence of Israel?

In terms of eating "shiat" I shall NOT be joining you and I suspect that ONLY those with your peculiar REAR abnormal practice will be engaging in it.

Directly affecting animals and their habitat is the issue of disturbance. Wildlife viewing can disrupt feeding or nesting sites, disturb breeding patterns or scare away animals. In Kenya, for example, tourist presence drives cheetahs off their reserves, increasing the risk of inbreeding and thus further endangering the species.
rabbee: yeah not like crocodiles, cheaters, jag wars, and pythons would ever disturb anything. your a real go-gaiter there joel. curing the world, with mental magic.
