Translation.....

Virunga national park is recognised worldwide as a site for a wealth of unique for wildlife species it houses. It thus was included in the world heritage site by UNESCO in 1979,

As the first national park in Africa, it faces many difficulties. But the Park has always resisted, even in times of armed conflict.
However, the Virunga Park is now threatened. Granted oil concessions, covering more than 85% of its territory, and oil companies are on its doorstep.
Petroleum activities entail risks of pollution and destabilization of the ecosystem that could destroy for ever this extraordinary environment, as well as the revenue it brings to local communities.

HELP US A LIMIT!

Call on all stakeholders to protect the Parc National des Virunga against oil exploration and to continue its sustainable development

Noted and signed. It is so sad that all over the world governments are so desperate for income that they are willing to sell off every square inch of their country, all of their wildlife and their peoples down the drain for short-term profit. When it's all gone, then what?

We don't need more oil fields! No one does! Well, I suppose if you're a greedy, little idiot who thinks the best way to get ahead in life is to ruin life for everyone else, then I suppose you do need more oil fields, but no one with any sense wants to spread any more devastation across the world!
