Description

Like a growing number of areas in Africa, a large part of Tanzania is threatened with conversion to desert due to continued loss of forest. Government officials are tackling the problem with replanting programs and attempts to restrict further deforestation, but they warn that it may already be too late for much of the country. Read about the desertification of Tanzania in this National Geographic News Eye in the Sky article.
