"Children working for heritage"

Dates:

28.08.-08.09.2003

Site: Kuiseb River - Namib Desert
Biome: Desert

Special Features:

 

 

 

 

The Namib is probably the oldest desert in the world. This has resulted in a unique array of biodiversity with high levels of endemism and numerous advanced adaptations to arid conditions.

The Kuiseb River is the most important of the ephemeral rivers of the Namib desert. It serves as a windbreak preventing the great dunes from moving further north. The deposited silt and vegetation prevents the river from flowing to the sea.
