You can't beat a bit of habitat destruction in Djoudj NP. Powerlines now run right through the park and huge rice fields are currently being created which will presumably mean channelling  more water away from the areas that need it. 

Sahel habitat in Northern Senegal. The whole area is constantly being raped by millions of livestock but many European migrants still manage to survive the winter in this extremely dusty landscape.  

Cameras and optics are covered in fine dust within seconds of cleaning them.
