Why Africa's National Parks Are Failing to Save Wildlife

The traditional parks model of closing off areas and keeping people out simply may not work in Africa, where human demands on the land are great. Instead, what's needed is an approach that finds ways to enable people and animals to co-exist.

Thanks Cher. Has this guy talked to the Harvard wildife researcher in Kenya? I think I saw recent news that this researcher has been involved in a plan to deal with the coexistence issues (which as I recall were said to have previously decimated wildlife). Incidentally I note that the article mentions the "crowded" nature of the areas. Why are they crowded and should humanity be planning to ensure that they won't be in future? Perhaps humanity should do some forward thinking about our own numbers and provide humane mechanisms to keep these more in balance with the natural world, in all nations.
