#Tsavorite is another of the world’s rarest gems with only ONE source yet discovered - here in Tsavo,East Africa. Gemologically it is superior to #Emerald on all counts, being harder, brighter and a more pure green.

One of the reasons we do not want the #BRITISH in #Africa is because of the rubbish about we, the Natives. We do not want you here, even if you 'spoke to our 'leaders''... peddling your #bigwhitelies to a population for pity. You know NOTHING ABOUT us..

Nor do you make an 'effort' to ASK - instead, with a mule-headed white stubborness, you say we know nothing. Well, let us educate you 101 @BBCBreaking and @theresa_may. The picture you used - those elephants were NAPPING - SLEEPING 😂

Because the Brits are so QUICK to judge the 'AFRICAN' as 'backward' and use this propaganda that we're a 'wild and wicked bunch of helpless idiots' who cannot take care of their own wild life when the truth is - the poaching trade is controlled by CAUCASIANS and called #hunting

Calculations are based on $2,497 / 412 lbs. = $6.06, this average will run from $6.50 to $6.75 per pound for #organic pasture grazed, grass-fed beef. This is about the price of one pound of ground grass-fed beef at a #farmersmarket or at #WholeFoodsMarket. 1 pound is 0.453592kg
...apologies for the heart attacks based on earlier tweets with the extra zero. [I gave myself one too] This is the dressed weight price - or carcass of the cow alone.

You've raised a valid Point @lesoi_ndoka - #CONservationists force #LOCALS pay to see Kenyan #wildlife.. #Business as usual?? Yet, @DSWT raises vasts amount of money through FUNDING and have branches of @DSWT throughout the world.
@MwangP01 @JamesOhayo @gathara @alaminkimathi
Take a look at this page for the David Sheldrick Wildlife Fund: - "You can foster an elephant for a Minimum annual donation of US$50 (GBP£35)" or 4515.35. They have millions of donations across the world..

Charging our children 500/- or any Kenyan to touch and see Wild Life in Funded sanctuaries is plain wrong - #CONservation is about care - but unfortunately the truth is that it's big MONEY and locals are locked out..

The Money is BIG @bonifacemwangi BIG. Land issues of #Samburu #Maa, #Rendille #Pokot is Politicians + #NIRT with #GoK behind them - and behind the land sales - they also use @NPSOfficial_KE, @AP's to evict pastoralists.
@ckfoot @gathara @alaminkimathi
Because it seems that this line of #CONservation has gotten international attention and more people are decrying the evictions of land from the indigenous community - the conservationists have taken an ugly turn - Sell wildlife....
#CONservation
#TheBigWhiteLie
@NationBreaking
Yet this is just as disastrous as evicting indigenous pastoralists.
• WILD LIFE belongs to #KENYANS as a whole, it cannot belong to eg, #NRT because it happens to be within those fences - fences which we agree, were put up illegally.

#Chinese. #Drones. #Rhinos
The narrative is that "Africans poach" We do not. The truth is that Chinese in #Laikipia are a threat for locals, for Rhinos & Elephants. #Kenyans need to be on high Alert.
Thanks Micheal

Unfortunately, Chinese are invading #Meru as well - another Rhino Sanctuary through #thebigwhitelie of 'investing in' a 5 star hotel. Can we stop this via civil suit before Gov.Kiraitu Murungi @SenKiraitu sells our Heritage?
@MuthoniMicheni @alaminkimathi @muhimu07
MERU, KENYA: "Mayor Liu Xiaohua of Huangshan Municipal from #China has led a delegation of Chinese investors who want to build tourist resorts in Mt Kenya - To @SenKiraitu - this is a DANGEROUS move.

The problem with TNC is that they're a FOREIGN company, and Nairobians are 'buying' water from them. 2. #TNC, can sell the land anytime they wish to, to a 3rd party which may or may not value the land as 'Riparian' - worse, they have done this before in Brazil & Australia.

.. to Mining or Oil companies. What most Kenyans are unaware of, is that Oil was found in the Aberdares in early 2014. Now join the dots - we shall pay @nature_org for water while they'll use the same water, to drill for oil?

Mercenaries have been hired to exploit Kenya's natural resources (wildlife, oil and minerals) for economic gain. The reasons go back many years, but there is one recent salient element that reflects all.

During 2003, against the backdrop of the turmoil and scandal within the Kenyan Wildlife Services (KWS), secret and private conversations were being held on how to manipulate this turmoil to take control of Kenya's natural resources (wildlife and minerals) for economic gain.(DM)
The major protagonists at these shadowy and clandestine meetings were Ian Craig of Kenya's Lewa Conservancy and David Walker - owner and director of the world's most notorious mercenary organisation Saladin Security.
