Lions are too valuable to take for granted."
jeremie posted a topic in Latest Conservation news and talkI have just found this interview of Craig Packer on the Nat Geo Facebook page. He has been recently banned from Tanzania for telling how corrupted is this country. Packer suggests fencing as a key tool to protect wildlife from humans and vice-versa, as Africa population is increasing. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2015/09/150916-book-talk-simon-worrall-craig-packer-lions-serengeti-tanzania-trophy-hunting-africa-conservation/?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=Social&utm_content=link_fb20150916news-tanzania&utm_campaign=Content&sf13116202=1
http://www.4x4community.co.za/forum/showthread.php?t=193143 Interesting and very long discussion about predator safety in camps. A lot of nonsense but also a lot of sensible opinions and advice. Maybe more applicable to South Africa than to East Africa, but an electrical fence in Mana Pools is mentioned. I have mostly been sleeping in my very small tent - kind of "croc-garage" - and have always felt safe. Have I been lucky? Interested to hear if any Safari-talkers have experiences or opinions in the matter.
