With its huge coral reefs, tropical rainforests and huge, lush vegetation, South Africa’s Lake Victoria is a paradise for marine life.
But this paradise isn’t for the faint of heart.
The lake has been dubbed the “most dangerous place on Earth” for the animals that live there.
The South African government is looking to make sure the lake is better protected in the future.
And it’s working with local businesses and other partners to make that happen.

It was an eventful week in Cape Town.
On Saturday, the country’s National Parks Authority announced it was ending its long-running conservation programme in Lake Victoria.
In the weeks since, a string of marine parks have been placed under review.
But this is the first time it’s happened to the Lake Victoria National Park.
This was not an easy decision to make, with the park’s ecosystem being a key part of the national heritage.
But it was the right decision to take.
The Park Service has said it wants to make a “complete and comprehensive” review of the park to make it as environmentally and socially sustainable as possible.
Lake Victoria’s biggest concern is its ecosystem, said Nalanda Ntshue, an associate professor at the University of the Free State.
She said the Lake’s ecosystem has been degraded by pollution, tourism and pollution of the surrounding lakebed.
The Lake is a key habitat for the endangered Cape Lion.
But she also worries that the park is being left behind by the other parks, especially because it’s not only the largest lake in South Africa, but also the only one that is protected by the state.
“The Lake Victoria park has a very large area of pristine freshwater that has been untouched for decades.
The Cape Lion is already extinct, so the Lake is really important to the ecosystem of Lake Victoria,” Ntsheue said.
“So we need to be proactive and be proactive in protecting this lake and its ecosystem.”
The Park Authority says the decision to stop the Lake Conservation Programme is part, in part, of its plans to create a new park to protect the Lake and its habitats from the commercial and industrial interests.
But the Park Service’s decision to end the Lake conservation programme will also affect the surrounding area.
This will mean the Lake will have to be protected from industrial development, tourism, pollution and pollution from mining.
But with more than 1,500 hectares of land, Lake Victoria has a huge amount of potential to be developed, Ntshenue said, and so far it’s been largely untouched.
And that’s just one part of it.
There are also concerns that the lake could be contaminated by the mining of the nearby gold and copper mines, which are in the area.
A proposal to develop Lake Victoria as a major mining development has also been put forward, but this has not yet been put to a referendum.
This is the last time the Park Authority will be able to set any of its own rules about the Lake.
The park is already a very protected area, and the park authority has also taken steps to safeguard the environment by creating a marine reserve, which will be protected under a special protection order.
So if there’s a mining proposal coming, it will be under the protection of the reserve, and if there is a proposed development, the reserve will be protecting the development.
“Lake Victoria has this huge potential to become a major tourist destination, and that is not something that has happened so far,” Nitsheue told News24, adding that the Park and Wildlife Service and the Park Agency need to make the most of that potential.
