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..

Let us revert to the truth of what @bonifacemwangi tweeted this A.M. We indigenous Kenyans will never benefit from our own Wild life unless it goes back into our hands. FACT
Take @DSWT - a trust founded on "land given by the Queen' or simply 'appropriated?' the deets get messy
The first few lines of the #BOOK "The Big Conservation Lie" speak of this truth.
Men, Women and Children have been evicted from their homes, to make way for 'WILDLIFE' and 'Tourism'. The natural ecosystem has been interfered with by meddling foreigners who today lock us out...
..so insidious is this lie, and covered up with #propaganda. Kenya has thousands of #IDP's go to the #Northlands and see. Marginalized by a Kenyan government in favour of "Tourism" and a BRAND @BrandKenya @wmnjoya @alaminkimathi
Dr @wmnjoya and Dr Mordecai Ogada have raised the ALARM about turning Kenya into a #ZOO. Development is not for the 'betterment' of KENYAN LIVES - but for those who can fly in to 'buy into Kenya'. @BrandKenya @MagicalKenya @MagicalKenyaUK are #monetary branding for foreigners.
#FUNDED wildlife sanctuaries and #CONservations including those in the North Lands should be open for #FREE to Kenyans who wish to view their own game. @lesoi_ndoka @SheWarria @VMatiru @ASALs_KE @kwskenya
