I will talk about this more as I digest what has happened. It has been a devastating life event.
Apart from almost been killed in a gunfight and spending 13 days in hard core prison, I have lost all my personal belongings, my investments for future in Botswana in the form of a Game Lodge, my relationship to Laura, my passion for managing and saving many animals in Chobe. My Zebra and Sable antelope will be destroyed and I hope homes will be found for my 9 dogs and 4 cats. I am physically and emotionally broken down and have no money. At 53 years old I will have to rebuild my life from scratch. My soul cries for the wildlife of Chobe and their very uncertain future. Already I have witnessed and intervened as hundreds of elephants were poached for their ivory. DWNP has little or no control over Chobe and its management. The worlds most important ecosystem, home to over half the population of African elephants, is at great risk. Uneducated and irresponsible people are in charge of this park and all of Botswana's wildlife. I see the future for wildlife there as very bleak. I hope to make some sense of this tragedy and will endeavour to raise myself up again and fight this great evil. God give me strength and guidance.
