Meet the African ‘Water Man’ Who Delivers Truckloads of Water to Thirsty Animals Daily


The effects of climate change on biodiversity and ecosystems are being felt across the world. Since June 2018, the Tsavo West National Park in Kenya has been suffering from a severe drought. The many species of animals there would have perished if not for the kindness of one man.
