Soil Erosion and Degradation

Soil Erosion and Degradation

Large scale erosion forming a gully system around six metres deep. The cause of the erosion is over grazing due to goats and other livestock. The exposed bare earth is washed away forming the gully system. Deforestation in the Lake Bogoria area is a serious threat as it leads to a drop in the water table and therefore streams and swamps drying out. Lake Bogoria, Kenya.
