Did you know; Lake Chad is very important providing over 20 million people, from the 4 surrounding countries, with fresh, clean and safe water. The Lake is nick-named The Disappearing Lake since over half has disappeared in recent years; there are only occasional rains from around June to October. The Lake is fringed with a thick layer of swampy vegetation, reeds and other Plants alike. More than half of the Lake’s space is taken by small Islands, reed-beds and mud-banks. The Lake is constantly above sea level. I learnt all that on an informational tour I went on today. It was very interesting.
