Conservation

With efforts to protect the fauna and flora of Gorongosa, it will be possible to guarantee that in the future it will still be possible to know this magnificent area and to know unique species.

This hard work to protect and to save these species falls on the Department of Conservation Pedro Muagura, where a passionate and dedicated team works daily for the numerous existent projects and for the recovery of some species extinct in the park, through a project of reintroduction, that has been quite successful.

Every sapling we plant is a wish and a promise that this sacred mountain, a green and imposing cathedral of trees, will be here for all eternity.” – Pedro Muagura.

In addition to species reintroduction programs and research on Lions and Elephants, there is a project to avoid Man-Elephant conflict, where park inspectors prevent Elephants from approaching the machambas (plantations) of populations, thus preventing more damage and casualties (for both humans and elephants). These missions are high-risk for the prosecutors, who courageously often confront the elephants, in order to avoid confrontation.
