Tanzania launches clean-up campaign on Mount Kilimanjaro
Tanzanian authorities launched a nationwide special campaign to clean up Mount Kilimanjaro. The campaign dubbed 'leave the mountain clean, conserve environment so that they can protect you' came at the time when the Africa's roof is overwhelmed with a number of challenges such as land degradation, non availability of good water, loss of biodiversity, frequent forest fires and pollution.
The mountain, which is a biosphere reserve and a world heritage site, generates nearly $30 million income annually and employs more than 300,000 people.
"We want this campaign to be successful and sensitise climbers to respect and conserve the environment in the Kilimanjaro National Park," the regional chief said, urging tour operators to take responsibilities of conserving environment of the park, which is the lifeline for many people.
