Voilà je suis sûr un article qui en intéressera plus d'un. Vous m'excuserez  je n'ai pas le temps de faire la traduction ce matin, promis je la ferais plus tard.

Le voilà déjà en anglais:

Masai Mara tourism threatening the golden goose
May 2009. The encroachment by developers into the world-renowned Masai Mara National Reserve has ignited a bitter row between the Kenya Tourism Federation (KTF) and the National Environmental Management Authority (NEMA).

The industry lobby has accused NEMA of being behind the encroachment of the reserve by developers which is now threatening the existence of wildlife and the ecosystem. NEMA, for its part, said that it had issued licences to the developers in accordance with the law.

"All environmental impact assessment (EIA) licenses issued in the Masai Mara ecosystem are procedural, have followed due process, and are in line with the provisions of the Environmental Management and Coordination Act," the state agency's public relations officer, Ruth Musembi said in a statement.

She added that in approving the projects, Nema had worked closely with lead agencies who confirmed that they had no objection to the licensing of the projects in the reserve.

KTF complained that the proliferation of unplanned development of tourism facilities in the Masai Mara that is at the heart of the wildlife corridor has put the integrity of Kenya as a leading tourism destination at stake.

Lucy Karume of the KTF, and Allan Earnshaw, the organisation's environment chairman, led more than 20 tourism private sector investors in voicing their displeasure with NEMA. They said that in the last four years, over 35 new camps and lodges have sprung up in the reserve and several others are about to be approved despite a new management plan for the Mara supported by both the Narok and Trans Mara county councils in Rift Valley province.

Cheetah Zoo plans cancelled
NEMA initially licensed a cheetah rehabilitation sanctuary to create a zoo at the main entrance of the national reserve. However after construction had started, protests by several bodies, including the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS), the license was revoked after the zoo appeared to lay plans for releasing cheetah into the wild, which has never been managed anywhere in the world, and to take in guests although it had no permission for accommodation.

KTF asked the Kenyan government to intervene and stop the unplanned and unregulated developments."
