After my recent visit to the Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, I have been enamoured with the place. It's one of the last true wilderness Edens in Africa - a really primal place that makes you feel like you are walking in the Africa that Hemingway and Livingstone experienced and described.
Unfortunately there is a threat of mining exploration in this wonderful place! I don't think there is enough attention on this - and if we can give this some coverage we might be able to mobilise enough attention to get intervention to occur (like the Mapungubwe saga in South Africa).
Please have a look at this petition which details all the shocking events that led to these exploration rights being granted, and share with your circle of conservation-focused friends. Let's spread the word!!
