Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Mali is densely populated? It's not the African country that leaps to my mind in that regard, deeply ignorant as I am....I guess a lot of Mali is desert, but still. Is there some key feature of Mali that causes you to mention it instead of Malawi, Burundi or Rwanda?

Incidentally, I may be getting involved in a conservation planning exercise in the Congo Basin, but sometimes it as myself "why bother".  I mean, I am pretty sure we can adapt our boreal-based method produce some interesting results that could be the starting point for a systematic implementation by a regional authority. But then it occurs to me that any given effort in Africa can be undone by 500 guys with automatic  rifles, of which no shortage, as you point out.
