Trash In – Trash Out: Waste Removal on Mount Kilimanjaro.
The summit and approaches to Africa’s highest peak are overwhelmed by thousands of people, threatening its ecological balance. Over 50,000 foreign tourists climb Mount Kilimanjaro every year, accompanied by a support staff exceeding 200,000 people. As the number of visitors grows each year, mountain facilities are increasingly strained. The Park is looking for solutions.
Erastus is the Chief Park Warden of Kilimanjaro National Park, Tanzania.
