Join a tour of Senegal, where one man has encouraged the planting of millions of mangrove trees to protect the environment and rice plantations.
“I track down and find Haidar el Ali, an interesting character who has been the minister of ecology and fisheries in Senegal.

Special thanks to Haidar el Ali and his wonderful family.”
