A drying Lake in Elementaita (Pictures By Ernest Waititu)

A young boy shows flowers, made from feathers shed by flamingos, he sells to tourists who visit Lake Naivasha. With the receding lake, the flamingos have decreased, the number tourists have declined and business is low.

David Kariuki points to the distance, hundreds of metres away, where the lake reached when he first settled in the area.

  1. Sad state of affairs! – Yet the solutions are so simple. Let EVERY KENYAN take it upon him/herselfe to protect whats left and replenish where we’ve destroyed – from The Mau Complex, Mt. Kenya Forest, The Sattima/Nyandarua Range, The Kakamega Rain Forest – Wakenya! What’s so hard about that?
    ONE KENYAN, ONE TREE.
