River Tana Delta

River Tana Delta 1

The Tana River Delta is one of Kenya’s largest and most important freshwater wetland systems both rich in wildlife and with a significant local community of cattle herders and others dependent on it and who have done so for centuries.  However, it is under serious threat. A number of large-scale projects have been proposed including turning wetlands into sugarcane plantations and rich natural woodland into “eco-friendly” bio-fuel crops.
