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.
"I think there is a great future for them [fruit bats] as long as we can continue to protect the habitat that they come to roost in and that they come to feed on." – Dion Scott, general manager of Kasanka National Park
On this week's eco@africa, we see how volcanic rocks are offering a greener alternative to damaging charcoal cooking, we meet an artist turning fruit waste into art and learn how to recycle wind turbines.
