207 Environmentalists killed in 2017

It was a record year for killing environmentally-concerned people in 2017. Some were killed just trying to protect precious landscapes from Asian island developers. Game Keepers and Wardens in Africa have  taken a big hit, too.

Evidence suggests at least some were at the hands of governments, others the victims of plantation developers and corporate farmers.

The rush in Southeast Asia to cultivate Palm Oils and other lucrative commodities, and growing cattle ranging in Africa, is all coming at the expense of rare wildlife as these and other practices continue at an ever greater pace.
