Conservation in Mozambique

Benguerra Island In mid-October, we made a 10-day visit to Mozambique where we had the opportunity to take a first-hand look at the impressive conservation work of both African Parks (in Bazaruto National Park; https://www.africanparks.org/index.php/the-parks/bazaruto) and the Carr Foundation (in Gorongosa National Park; http://www.gorongosa.org/our-story/our-team/greg-carr) – including, in the case of the latter in particular, associated social development programmes. We also had an initial informal exchange about possible Rainforest Trust engagement in Zambia, which relates back to our September visit to Mwinilunga (http://www.alavan.biz/?s=kalahari&submit=Search) and the possibility of launching community conservation projects there. Several strands of follow up are in hand.
