Cape Town – Ndoni Khanyile has joined Al Jazeera (DStv 406/StarSat 257) as a presenter of the new 7th season of the Qatar-based 24-hour TV news channel's environmental affairs show, earthrise, which starts on Monday 20 April at 23:30.

Another South African, Kath Hern is the series producer.

Khanyile, the former Tech Report anchor on eNCA (DStv 403) left last year to present Innovate Africa for Al Jazeera and has now joined earthrise as one of the presenters.

In the new upcoming season Ndoni Khanyile travels to the Seychelles to find out how the Evolutionary Distinct & Globally Endangered (EDGE) programme works which was started by the Zoological Society of London.

The first new episode of earthrise on Al Jazeera also follows Juliana Schatz to the Public Lab in New Orleans where a global hobbyist movement is creating inexpensive tools to monitor environmental hazards.

Last month Khanyile travelled to Mozambique to shoot her second segment for earthrise, looking at a rural community in northern Mozambique trying to halt the devastation of its rich hardwood trees being felled for fuel.

"Working on solution-orientated programming is great because it's all about what can and is being done about various challenges – usually by ordinary people committed to change," says Khanyile.

"Preserving our natural resources is critical to our future, especially in Africa, where so many still make their livelihood from the land."
