Lake Victoria: An Ecosystem in Turmoil explores how environmental degradation of Lake Victoria is affecting the people and communities who call the lake and basin their home. The film features a series of personal stories that reveal how the quest to make a living in the basin is impacting negatively on the lake. With dwindling fish-stocks leading to clashes between fishermen, farmers tainting the waters with chemicals, and miners washing mercury into the food chain, the film provides an in-depth overview of just how under siege Lake Victoria’s ecosystem is.
