GNP – Science


With the studies that have been developed and will be in the future of the species that constitute the park and the relations between them, it becomes simpler to draw conservation and management plans of Gorongosa.

“Gorongosa, I will say it now, is ecologically the most diverse park in the world” – E.O. Wilson

E.O. Wilson is an American biologist, born in 1929 and an expert on ants. Between 2011 and 2012 he created a special affection for Gorongosa, since he led several scientific expeditions to catalog the local biodiversity. He later created “Vida na Terra” a new digital biology book (for secondary school students) that presents, in numerous chapters, the Gorongosa National Park, and how this area is a model ecosystem and the best scenario For ecology and evolution classes. Its foundation, E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation, has partnered with the Gorongosa Restoration Project to help preserve this unique ecosystem.
