World Environment Day - Raise Your Voice, Not the Sea Level

Love Link for Lake Wenchi

In Ethiopia, thousands will gather on WED for "Love Link for Lake Wenchi", a demonstration to show support for conservation efforts for the iconic Lake Wenchi.
Organized by the Micro Business College, efforts include planting trees and preventing further deforestation by looking for alternatives to firewood.
Soil erosion from the surrounding mountains is one of the greatest threats to Lake Wenchi, which is one of Africa's prominent crater lakes. The conservation efforts, supported by its chief patron, the former President of Ethiopia, Girma Wolde-Giorgis, are all geared towards helping preserve this landmark, which is also the chief resource for agriculture for thousands of farmers living along or near its banks.
