Cal Madow mountains in Somalia •

Last update: June 4th, 2020 at 5:30 pm

Today’s Image of the Day from the European Space Agency features the Cal Madow mountain range in Northern Somalia.

The densely forested mountains stand out in a darker color against the rest of Somalia, which does not have as much vegetation. 

Deforestation is a major issue here, but the country lacks proper conservation measures for protection.

The region is home to rare wildlife and diverse plant species.
