Owls are seen as a bad omen in many Kenyan communities and are often killed. Now at one of the few bird sanctuaries in the country, bird keepers are showing farmers their importance for the overall ecosystem.
This week on Eco Africa we see how people in Togo are turning illegal dumpsites into gardens, learn more about using herbs to fight malaria in Uganda and see how a sanctuary in Kenya is teaching owls how to fly again.
On this week's Eco Africa we visit a sanctuary helping Kenyan owls, try our green thumbs on urban farming and see how merry-go-rounds can actually help kids get their homework done in the dark.
On this week's Eco Africa, we visit the only Mountain Bongo antelope breeding program in the world trying to save the species, Burkina Faso's plastic weavers and replanting ebony trees in Cameroon.
