Never before has Mauritius been covered by the international media like the past two weeks. The Mauritian Government’s officials are by now famous on the international platform for their total disrespect and disregard towards animals and the biodiversity . Our ecosystem has been seriously weakened and its sustainability relies on actions taken now! Now is the time. It might soon be too late…
The worst point is that the Excellency, Mrs Ameenah-Gurib Fakim, The President of the Republic of Mauritius is a Biodiversity expert and renown scientist who led countless biodiversity projects! Her silence on this issue keeps the world perplex as well…
Read and reflect…. Nothing to be proud of!
