We cannot imagine that anybody would seriously dispute the arguments championed against the practice of keeping animals in captivity, the institutionalization of children or the requirement that hotels in fragile ecosystems require waste management systems to eliminate any negative impact on the environment.

One Horizon is very proud of its ability to be able to provide employment for local community projects. One of the main projects is fencing. The purpose of these fencing projects is to secure property from intruders but at the same time not to hinder the movement of wild animals.
