"AFRICA. Continent 'extraordinaire', where humanity claims to have been born. Land of many vistas marked by endless forests and immense deserts, undulating plains and turquoise beaches, mystical rivers, white mountain peaks and low-lying swamps. Not here yet, the concrete jungle. AFRICA. Land of many faces, peopled by Tuaregs and Zulus, Efe pigmies and Masaiis, Fulanis and Somalis: farmers, hunters, warriors, fishermen or nomads, through drought and flood, war and famine, still and tenuously, you survive. AFRICA. Land of magnificent beasts: lions, rhinos, cheetahs, elephants, wild dogs, hyenas, warthogs, Cape buffalos, antelopes - too many to name - eagles, hornbills and bee-eaters, pythons, vipers and puff adders, scorpions, spiders, mosquitoes and beetles, crocs and Nile perch, gorilla and baboons, giraffes and zebras, leopards and bat-eared foxes, jackals and genets... I write your names and wonder: have you been spared yet another day? AFRICA. Land of wonder, land of mystery, land of origin: you are all we have left of the divine design. Can we save you?"
