Open letter: Stop the hypocrisy – a call for the genuine inclusion of African communities in decisions about our wildlife
As representatives of millions of rural Africans who live alongside dangerous and charismatic wild
animals, we urgently call on international decision-makers to reject hypocritical laws and policies that
ignore African perspectives and trample our rights as custodians of our wildlife. It is time to stop talking
about African wildlife without Africans at the discussion table.
