Help us protect Dallol and have it listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site by contributing to an ambitious and very interesting crowd-sourced project:

Dallol is located in the northern Danakil desert of Ethiopia, at the bottom of the African rift. It is a salt dome with a unique and bizarre array of colorful geysers, hot springs, acid lakes and mineral pools encrusted with sulfur and various salt crystals.
It is not a volcano in the strict sense, but a very active hydrothermal area that results from the interaction between the salt water from the Red Sea, evaporation deposits and heat from an underlying magma chamber, hidden beneath more than 2 km of salt.

This geological and biological heritage is now threatened by a large-scale mining industry plans. World-renowned photographer and director Olivier Grunewald is working on a documentary in order to raise awareness among the Ethiopian authorities and beyond, to urge them to apply for its nomination as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

If you like to contribute - small or big - to this ambitious crowd-funded project, you can find out more at the corresponding KissKiss BankBank project page.
