Environmental Colonialism: “Saving” Africa from Africans
By Robert H. Nelson
This article appeared in the Summer 2003 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

Under the banner of saving the African environment, Africans in the last half century have been subjected to colonialism from an overlooked source: the conservation movement. Local populations have been displaced and impoverished in order to create national parks and to serve other conservation objectives, in large part because Western conservationists misunderstand African wildlife management practices and problems.
