Tanzania's Maasai people herd cattle on the same land that lions roam. Traditionally, they would attack lions who threatened their livestock. But a new initiative is helping humans and animals live safely alongside each other.
This week on Eco Africa we look at the impacts of droughts in southern African countries and see how a tiny island off the coast of Tanzania with a small population is taking their destiny into their own hands.
On this week's Eco Africa, we check out an eco-friendly twist on hair extensions in Kenya, turning recycled plastic into roads in South Africa and protecting lions in Tanzania.
"If we were to continue protecting these lions, our children will continue seeing them... And they will then protect lions, because they'll be educated to do so." — Saitoti Petro, Maasai Warrior
On this week's Eco Africa, we visit a group in Cameroon empowering women by providing them with solar panels and see how an artist in South Africa is making decoys to entice penguins to go where there is more food.
