Deforestation is a vicious circle because it leads to soil erosion which then fuels the need for more land. Nigeria's population is exploding and before things get worse, reforestation efforts need to be ramped up.
On this week's eco@africa, we look at reforestation efforts in Nigeria, learn about environmentally friendly aqua farming and see why shea trees are more valuable kept alive than used as charcoal in Burkina Faso.
On this week's eco@africa, making paper out of banana peels, alternatives to real tropical timber and reintroducing the eland antelope to South Africa's Cape Flats. Tune in for all this and more!
On this edition, we meet the kids cleaning up their South African township and explore how an aquatic fern could make ships more eco-friendly.
On this week's eco@africa, we shop at a Food Assembly in Germany, see how Lake Victoria's water hyacinths can be used as fertilizer and visit a chimpanzee orphanage in Liberia. Check out the show for this and much more.
