Kilimanjaro's disappearing glaciers

Useful reading for those who are taking part in the October 6th - 15th Kilimanjaro Trail:

Article on Salon.com - The Woes of Kilimanjaro:

"The fabled glaciers on Tanzania's majestic mountain will soon be gone. Its forests are disappearing, too. For local farmers, this could mean disaster. For the rest of us, it's another unbearable loss on an overheating planet."
The article is part of Reports From a Warming Planet which in turn is part of a project called Living on Earth which in turn is a joint initiative by U.C. Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism, Salon and NPR [the US' sort-of equivalent of BBC Radio].

If you want to partake in the trail, or any other Wilderness Foundation events, get in touch - events (at) wildernessfoundation.org.uk
