Photo by Mattias A. Klum @mattiasklumofficial | I took this image in Botswana’s magnificent Okavango Delta, where hippos alter the landscape in and around this wetland, annually flushed by nearly 11 cubic kilometers of water. By virtue of their size, hippos move huge amounts of soil, creating water channels and paths on land that redirect water. This also creates habitat and shelter for other species. Hippos are truly ecosystem engineers! They also play an important role in this delta and elsewhere by fertilizing the water; they bring nutrients to rivers and lakes that wouldn’t otherwise be there, helping enrich Okavango’s plant and animal life. Please go to @mattiasklumofficial to see more images and stories from our projects around the world. A healthy delta provides numerous ecosystem services for mankind. #protectbiodiversity #africa #ecosystem #engineer #beauty @thephotosociety
