The Human Wildlife Conflict 

Humans are the number 1 negative impact affecting the environment and the natural world.

We have the capacity and capability to also be the number 1 positive impact but as a species we have as yet failed to show that.

Elephants and baboons are possibly the next ones in the queue for their influence on the environment around them being the gardeners of Africa, changing the landscape, spreading seeds and creating/destroying habitats and feedfor different animals.
