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.
