- My Personal relation to the World Heritage Site:
I had a great experience moths ago, collaring elephants in the West Kilimanjaro Region. I discover a new way to be part of this my Country
- Important to safeguard my natural World Heritage Site:
It is a matter of facts that pollution and global heting is seriously damaging the whole Earth, but in Africa, for the moment, we don't have much more than our natural attractions. We must put our efforts in protecting them against human unconsciousness
- Specific problems and threats of my WHS:
Only few years ago the pick of Kilimanjaro was fully covered by ice. Now a big part of it is melted. Then, the major National Parks in Tanzania, Serengeti, Tarangire, Ngogrongoro and so on, are taking all the attention of tour operators and safari companies, leaving minor sites without sufficient economical sources to maintain their biodiversity
- Motivation for participating in the International Youth Forum 2010:
I feel that I can, I must do something for the Region where I have been born
- Message to the world concerning WHS and biodiversity:
We should behave as we did not inherit the world from our parents but as we borrow it from our children. We are supposed to give it back to them in good conditions
