Human intervention. Climate change. Ancient trees that were tall when the Roman Empire was in control. Life is fleeting, especially when humanity destroys it.

[www.npr.org]

"The decline and death of so many large baobabs in recent years is so tragic," Baum says. "It is heartbreaking that any should die — but even worse that we might be seeing the beginning of the end of all the giant baobabs on the planet."

"A new survey of baobab trees across several countries in southern Africa found that most of the two dozen oldest and biggest trees have died or significantly deteriorated in the last decade."

What a coincidence, the same thing happens with people!

At the end of their lifespan. Baobab's lifespan is in the thousands of years. So no, the two are not similar.

"Baobab. They're fat and they last thousands of years.."

With an eye towards conservation of the species, can baobab trees not be planted in other parts of the world with a similar climate?



Lie to me if you must, but don't lie to me and insult my intelligence in the same sentence.
