In Nairobi, recycling poo is cleaning up the slums | AFP

Africa Weekly – a round up of news and features | AFP

This week on Africa Weekly we head to Togo, where each year the sea erodes as much as 10 metres of coastline, distorting Togo’s landscape and driving out fishing communities. Then we head to the Lamu Archipelago in northeastern Kenya, where residents fear a coal-fired power plant project will threaten the delicate ecosystem and tourism it attracts.

Scientists a step closer to saving northern white rhino from extinction | AFP

Science is the only hope for the northern white rhino — one of two subspecies of white rhino — after the death of the last male, named Sudan, last year at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya where the groundbreaking procedure was carried out Thursday.

Gentle giraffes threatened with ‘silent extinction’ | AFP

In Kenya, as across Africa, populations of the world’s tallest mammals are quietly, yet sharply, in decline. Giraffe numbers across the continent fell 40 percent between 1985 and 2015, to just under 100,000 animals, according to the best figures available to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). But unlike the clarion calls sounded over the catastrophic collapse of elephant, lion and rhino populations, less attention was paid to the giraffe’s private crisis.
