Tanzania- Don't Sell the Serengeti to Safari Hunters

Tanzanian President Kikwete is on the verge of signing a deal with a big game corporation, (Ortello Business Corporation), that has special interests in rich Middle Eastern hunters who wish to kill lions and leopards. They want a new hunting block as they have killed most of the wildlife on their old one.

This deal would displace 48,000 members of Africa's Maasai tribe- and this same corporation has pushed the trible off their land before in favor of wealthy hunters. Following a public outcry, President Kikwete returned the land to the Maasai. We ask the President to STOP the deal to sell the Serengeti to big game hunters.
