The Gorilla City

We unexpectedly found 120,000 lowland gorillas in Africa. Great! Wait… really? Is that good news? It is sure good they are there, but that we found them is no good news at all, at least not for the Gorillas.
 
 

 

As far as I know Africa, we will have a hard time protecting them. We, the West, can’t even protect humans in the Congo, how are we going to stop those extra 120,000 from becoming bush meat? All Congo will go: “What the heck? We do have so many, they can hardly count them. Let’s fire up the BBQ.”

 

As any modern environmentalist can tell you, the only way of rescuing those gorillas is to exploit them. Let InterConti or Marriot build a hotel in the Rainforest for people to see the “The Gorilla City”. Of course they need to be strictly non-invasive and under UN protection. Profitable high-end tourism is the hype. Fly in and out with noise reduced helis only. People are paying millions to see the earth through a spacecraft window.

 

Less romantic but even more effective: Let us buy them. We pay the Congo $200 for each gorilla kept alive. I take 5 apes straight away. Who is with me? I am sure for $24m you can get a lot in Congo. The WWF is doing the controlling.

 

That would be good news.
