8:32 pm
a host of problems there. paddling through lake also has become more of a struggle since the savini a plant's altered his ecosystem sees richard and goalie a fisherman who grew up in a small community on the shores of the lake the fast growing weed blocks sunlight and depletes oxygen from the water suffocating aquatic life. really nice to have a mound 7 years giving us a lot of trouble. it has affected my fishing activity long in the past when i went out to fish i would have a good catch for me and my family and me and i thought now it's become really hard for. this morning a group of local residents from design we have come together to clear the invasive plants from the main entrance to the lake the villages are worried it will spread

8:34 pm
cover in a matter of months i'm cool is already negotiating its deployment with the commute government but they have been concerns in the community due to fears the bug also eats their crops. biological can crow using this salvia weaver has been used in many countries around the world in creating in 15 concrete is in africa and the best example is that of santa god they were able to get rid of their sort of e-mail within a year using the biological control and the way this weaver works is that if it's specific on this sardinia what happened after the eating salvia just died because they have not arrested twice a month the researcher makes the trip from cameroon capital young to work at the lick accompanied by colleagues and students i'm cool also collects details on the african manatee the least studied large mammal in africa they're shy by nature and

activity night society needs a rig in order to detect the creatures location and movements to kuka muses specialised equipment including. the information gained is critical for the conservation of the graceful animals so the reason my team and i working so hard is because we want to save the african american which is being threatened by portraying which is illegal haunting of this species and also creating by accident capture in a fishing net their population over or raising and even especially here like also where these trade offs are of being combined into the home thing making the population trading the trees crossed the conservation group regularly sends out volunteers to speak to the local community the purpose is to inform villages about the importance of. the leak and all its natural resources including the manatees
8:36 pm
they too are struggling to survive. when a manatee gets caught in the net it eats up all the fish even if it's $100.00. the problem is due to the fact that manatees don't have access to enough sea grass chucked out by the survey near survey trish. many of these community members have lost their source of income because of. local fishermen have plenty of incentive to do all they can to remove the alien plants and prevent its break and they hope that aristide. will soon get the go ahead to introduce the tiny bug that will save the leak by devouring its pesky surface cover for. what an interesting project we know to pay a visit to the sun relatives of the money the elephants look at all. elephants are

nature conservation can be an uphill battle. in kosovo and neighboring albania hydro power plants are still widely considered an eco friendly way to generate electricity but building more of them alongside illegal timber felling would further shrink the habitats of endangered species such as bears lynx and wolves. sheepish alice says most of the people don't realise what is going on they're just not aware of the issues but she wants to change that. we have to pay more attention to our natural environment especially in the national park this also affects my business. if forest clearance and everything that goes along with it is allowed to go on i will eventually lose my. because if they gained independence in 2008 it's only natural she says that it will take a while for such
