Kenyans fear 'ecological disaster' if two swollen lakes merge
The fresh waters of Kenya's Lake Baringo teem with birds, fish, hippopotamuses and crocodiles and sustain tens of thousands of people. But none of them can survive in the alkaline Lake Bogoria nearby.

Now heavy rainfall and ecological destruction means the two lakes are rising and may merge.
