In this national park, the Simien Mountains, UNESCO and IUCN demands to the
Ethiopian government to resettle the 3000 farmers living in the area. In
a country where people are striving to survive, wildlife has the
priority, and the priority is set by western societies. This animal shall have the right to live, as every non-human
elements on earth. But today, its protection commands the extinction of
man, and this, we should also know.But I admit, the picture is really nice!
@B. Guillaume your information gives me food for thought...extinction of man who needs food, shelter and a place to live, too!...It good to know more about the National Park in the Simien Mountains...priority set by Western standards, but what about the people there?? Will they all be able resettle? Wondering where the 3000 were before? Life in the mountains there complicated by western standards! Still a lovely image!

Brian, Such an awesome image. The eyes, though kinda tiny, in comparison to this big ones body, are keen, sharp and so very focused on something in the area! Love the textures shown of his fur/hair as shown in contrast with the wonderful and colorful soft background. I agree with Alexa's comment about the beauty of this animal...that red color is remarkable! Very cool image!
