Soil erosion in Tanzania – in pictures

The Jali Ardhi, or ‘care for the land’ project, studies the impact of soil erosion on Maasai communities and their grazing lands. Photojournalist Carey Marks captures the changing landscape, its people – and the challenges they face.. Over the last 10 years, the Tanzanian Maasai landscape has witnessed a dramatic increase in soil erosion with almost total destruction of soil in many areas used for grazing of livestock.
