The only thing I can think of as to why Africa would agree to this would be because they would be getting more money from China than they would from tourist attractions..
Of course I don't know if that's true, just thinking. xD

More money is driving this.
But keep in mind that the plans are not final!
That is why I included a link to the petition to stop it.
Remember, there is a choice, route through the Serengeti, or around it.
Both ways they can still do their mining, but one of the ways (through it) will destroy the Serengeti as we know it.
Voice you opinion now, and perhaps influence the outcome?

I was worried it would be money..
So there is a way to go around the Serengeti? Well thank god for that. Hopefully it won't cause problems for wildlife.
It'll probably cost more money to go around the Serengeti, but it would be worth it in the long run, I'm sure.
I'll check the link now. (:

Though money is just a piece of paper, any business will do anything to increase its income. China has been advancing at a steady pace, the minerals will bring in great income from cellphones. It's like Siberia in Russia. There's amazing deposits of natural resources, yet too dangerous to get them currently.

I read an article on this, and I trully believe that nature's creations are more important. Anyone can find money.....yet the Great Migration is one of a kind. Some humans disgust me. I'm glad that another country is trying to stop this. Besides, China has ruined their homeland, why ruin another?


agreed, i really feel like punching someone in the nose right now...i wish people would stop and realize what they are doing...i'm so mad Evil or Very Mad ...
just like the quote on the WEO home page...

"This we know:
All things are connected like the blood that unites us.
We did not weave the web of life, we are merely a strand in it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves".

hmmm.... troubling for sure Sad is this highway like just on flat ground? If they are going to (which I'm 100% against) they should make it elevated since if its on the ground, people will have to stop for a huge crossing + highways go about 80 mph. Hit a wildbeest and... headlines.
