Video from the 2009 Mara River Expedition

The Mau Forest, Source of the Mara River, by No Water No Life (Alison Fast), 2009 (9:56).

Description by NWNL: No Water No Life filmed this during its 2009 Mara River Expedition to Kenya and Tanzania to document downstream impacts of deforestation in the Mau Forest – the Mara River’s source. Suffering from effects of a 3-year drought, stakeholders interviewed describe the threats from severely-reduced water flows in the Mara River and current plans to save the Mau Forest, and therefore the Mara River.
