2:47 pm
the lava is still hot, though it will take a long time for it to cool down. in the mean time, scientists on the island of tin, a reef, i running tests to see if the ashes of the volcano can be used to make them. and while the reconstruction, then given the yaki is sadie, or as i understand, the ashes are very clean. are like what would be perfect for construction. ok locally. that would give houses and buildings on local touch tune. really garza hawaii the fees show him the n. sadala. near the middle. the architect has a vision. he wants to fully rebuild, told ok to live a life right next to the larva. is she an equal? so everything that will be built on the lava, he should be sustainable. antique a logical it, but it broke it down. mean, boy, that i also think from boston there, kimberly protected natural area for the loveland. but for the, the location like or larva horsey garritano once to give back to the inhabitants of,
2:48 pm
to locate and other villages in the south west of lap alma, what the volcano has taken from them, their homes and part of their identity. of all the animals in the animal kingdom. hyenas are probably among those of the biggest in big problem proceed. does mean all gillian roofless, i know the actually intelligent creatures who form clowns with complexes you hierarchies and a vet is not all white. it is true that they are predictors. they're also savages who play an important role in most african ecosystems. the skeleton coast in northwestern namibia is home to brown hyenas, also known as strand wolves. why knows, are very important in the ecosystem, and i've got a very important role to play, but like with jade as the bad guys. and that's what people think about i enough in

2:51 pm
full liquor to cheat us. and in the hyenas would be by catch of that. just people are afraid of i and i said people don't appreciate the value of brown. i know us and they skate of 9. i. so people would, would throw stones at them, they would, j, seamless goss, 7 years of drought have ravaged the region. the animals here have to travel ever greater distances in search of food. this means they cross paths with farmers like a manual glory rob, who are now losing more and more livestock to predators. if the dental plays in, i'm in your quote, the ear canal to reach it last week went to lions to seek physics goals. 8 and she deal going to farmer in i looked it up as
