Kamfers Dam, a large wetland near Kimberley, South Africa, is one of only four places in the whole of Africa where the spectacular Lesser Flamingo breeds. Unfortunately it is in serious trouble. Untreated sewage from a broken sewage works is flooding into it, and a large housing development has been proposed near it. The flamingos and other wildlife that depend on the dam, as well as the numerous people who live in surrounding suburbs, are now in danger.

As part of an effort to raise awareness about the plight of the flamingos at this spot, a live webcam has been installed in the area.
