As a tribute to Wangari Maathai, Kenya’s tireless campaigner for environmental protection who died in September this year, Francesca de Gasparis, Europe Director of the Green Belt Movement, reflects on Maathai’s message and the ongoing work to protect the forests of Kenya. We hear also from two scientists at the forefront of the Rinderpest eradication campaign, on how that was achieved, and from Samuel Koputa who has been training farmers to protect their livestock again ticks using extract from the Tephrosia plant.
