The great Serengeti Watch organization announced over the weekend that they had an advance copy of the Tanzanian government’s environmental impact study necessary for proceeding with the highway, but they didn’t analyze it for us. This is a serious mistake.
The 600-page report has not yet been officially released, but you can get to it through Serengeti Watch by clicking here.
I haven’t read it, and like many supporters of Serengeti Watch I’m upset that they led me to the document without some coaching as to what should be looked at in the 600 pages. The point of Serengeti Watch is to guide those of us who have placed our trust in them to take the lead. They’ve dropped an enormous opportunity, here.
Please, Serengeti Watch, give us a few more details and fast, before others not quite so sympathetic will do so.
