Water

One woman’s bold statement about water. The next world war could be about water, more valuable than oil and gold. Water is life we can’t do anything without it.

Elephant and calves at Tarangire National Park

by jacqueline on November 30, 2016

Below is a link to a video I took of a mother elephant and 2 calves at Tarangire National Park Tanzania. No editing, no added sound, only raw footage 6 mins long. I’m told that it’s too long of a video for a website, but since both are my entities to share as I will……
I hope this draws the viewer into feeling they are there. Because in the not too distant future this scene will vanish.The water will dry up, pressure from local communities living around national parks who want water for their cattle.
Cattle are not sustainable in drought prone areas, they turn it into a dust bowl. There are far too many cattle bred/born since Independence in 1961 to be sustainable. Then there’s human, wildlife conflict when a roaming lion kills a Maasai cow. They retaliate as is their custom, and kill the lion. This is a fragile Eco-system in the balance.
I hope you enjoy the video.

“We are all wardens of the land we inhabit, therefore morally obligated to protect wildlife and the environment for future generations. Otherwise we have failed in our duty as human beings”.

I found it difficult to adjust to being back from the other side of the world in Tabora. Life is so much easier here by comparison. As much as I’d like to talk story about my journey this summer 2011 I tend not to because it’s hard for people to relate to, bucket baths for […]

November 29, 2011

At the end of June 2011 I returned to Tabora to work on another Carina Water Project.
