Plans to build a conservation park worth R100-billion in KwaZulu-Natal

Plans to build the most technically advanced conservation facility in KwaZulu Natal worth R100 billion are underway. A British entrepreneur, Richard Prinsloo Curson is crowdfunding to support an ambitious project fittingly dubbed Noah’s Ark.

The state-of-the-art animal and ecological conservation park will reportedly cover 100 square kilometres along the North East coast of KwaZulu Natal.

The development will feature a national park, the world’s biggest aquarium, geodomes with artificial environments replicating Antarctica and the Amazon Rain Forest as well as pulse beam anti-aircraft technology to defend the animal population.

The facility will consist of two compounds - the first, a national park providing a protected and safe natural habitat for animals, and the second, a visitor and science compound spread out over 12 square kilometers. Once built, they plan to stock the park with species on the endangered list and create effective breeding programmes to eliminate the likelihood of their extinction. They also plan to undertake strategic research aimed at increasing the population growth of endangered species until they are able to be removed from the endangered species list.

They also hope to create effective measures to eradicate all human-related contributing factors to population decrease and to strategically introduce endangered species into the natural ecosystem of the park on a regular basis.

According to their mission statement, they also plan to create nonprofit organisations (NPOs). The role of the NPOs will be to eradicate human influence over the population decline of each endangered species.

This will be the largest and most ambitious conservation project in history.

The development is supported by His Majesty The King of the Zulus and leader of the region INkosi Tembe under uMkhanyakude District.

‘The animal kingdom is at crisis point; climate change, over development, farming, ocean plastic and big game hunting and poaching are driving thousands of species off the face of the earth,’ their website explains.

‘If humanity continues at the above trend the natural world will be gone in 20 years and the human race will be left fighting the horrific consequences of climate change to survive.’

‘It is to serve the same purpose as the famous biblical Noah’s Ark we all know; it is a boundless effort to stop Earth’s animals from being wiped out completely.’

The ambitious five-year project will be documented in a new 12-part television series that is currently being filmed.

This will be the largest and most ambitious conservation project in history.
