    They are still building a road through there, for now being gravel. Just wait to see how long that lasts. Are they going to control the number of people using the road?  The letter to the UN leaves a lot of unanswered questions.

    I hope they keep their promise, but like all the other governments of this world, they very rarely do keep their promise.

    This is wonderfully touching and monumental!
    Where is the U.S. news (Brian Williams) to report this victory of the moment?
    Also, why are there only 377 followers on Twitter?
    Are people so caught up in themselves that they can settle for the zebra action figure to show the kids what it was once like?
    Enjoy the moment and peace of justice for our friend on the plains.

    What’s stopping the media on this story?

    Media Traction is Needed
    -Scientists, Where is the interview with Charlie Rose?
    -Where is Tavis Smiley’s interview with ‘Savetheserengeti.org’?
    -Where is the Own Special ‘O’?

    Last time I checked
    Mr. Wildebeast is non-partisan..
