When my father was alive he was a big donr to the animal funds like Sierra Club and the WWF….I always admired his dedication to these organizations and their task of helping the wildlife of this planet.
Sp an article I read recently made me feel a little sick and then made me angry…….
This was a sensitive moment for one of the globe’s most prominent charities. The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) had long helped fund and equip Chitwan’s forest rangers, who patrol the area in jeeps, boats, and on elephant backs alongside soldiers from the park’s in-house army battalion. Now WWF’s partners in the war against poaching stood accused of torturing a man to death.
WWF’s staff on the ground in Nepal leaped into action — not to demand justice, but to lobby for the charges to disappear. When the Nepalese government dropped the case months later, the charity declared it a victory in the fight against poaching. Then WWF Nepal continued to work closely with the rangers and fund the park as if nothing had happened.
That was Part One….and the rest of the series is listed here…..
Part 2: Leaked Report Shows WWF Was Warned Years Ago Of “Frightening” Abuses
Part 3: WWF Says Indigenous People Want This Park — But An Internal Report Reveals Fears Of Ranger “Repression.”
Part 4: WWF-Backed Guards Raped Pregnant Women And Tortured Villagers At A Wildlife Park Funded By The US Government
Part 5: WWF Is Investigating Two More Alleged Murders At A Park Where Rangers Are Accused Of Rape And Torture
Part 6: The US Government Spent Millions Funding WWF-Backed Forces Accused Of Torture and Murder
This is disgusting and one reason why all my charities are local ones that I can check on to be sure they are doing what they say they are doing.
