Giving Nature A Voice: Ziwa Victoria Part 2 – Tainting the Shores

Part 2 of Ziwa Victoria documents unsound environmental practices along the Great Lake’s shoreline: the replacement of indigenous rainforests with palm oil plantations, artisanal gold mines that leach mercury, uncontrolled use of pesticides, and sewage pollution. They all contribute to oxygen depletion and the spread of water hyacinth, choking the lake. The film also looks at possible solutions to save Africa’s greatest lake. A film by Benj Binks.
