In Africa's greatest mammal migration, around 10 million fruit bats travel from Congo to Kasanka National Park in Zambia every year. The species is under threat: they're hunted in Congo, and their forest habitat in Zambia is shrinking.
In Africa's greatest mammal migration, around 10 million fruit bats travel from Congo to Kasanka National Park in Zambia every year. But they are under threat from hunters and habitat loss.
Bats get a bad rap as bloodsuckers and disease carriers. But they are actually invaluable to ecosystems. In Zambia, one group is trying to save a tiny forest that is home to 10 million of them.
This week, we visit an organic farmer doing battle with crows, find a use for invasive water hyacinth, ask if sharing is sustainable and check out a portable solar alternative to smelly generators.
