Our Mission

To advance an integrated multi-partner approach to conservation and to people-centred development. The Gorongosa Project protects the Park’s biodiversity and ecosystem services and unlocks its economic potential for the community inhabitants of the Gorongosa Buffer Zone, Sofala Province, Mozambique and further afield. At a time of increasing fragmentation of wild landscapes across Africa, we have an historic opportunity to create an immense, unfenced, connected mosaic of Protected Areas in central Mozambique, comparable in size to the Serengeti Ecosystem.  This landscape is hailed by E.O. Wilson as one of the most biodiverse places on Earth.  This healthy landscape will serve as an engine of sustainable economic growth to the people who live around the Park. By adopting a 21st Century conservation model of balancing the needs of wildlife and people, we are protecting and saving this beautiful wilderness, returning it to its rightful place as one of Africa’s greatest parks.

Ecotourism

By developing sustainable tourism, we create employment for local people and generate sustainable revenue for the Park. Every guest that visits Gorongosa plays a vital role in this amazing conservation effort.

Conservation

Community

By providing assistance to farmers, educational programs, and health care, we improve the well-being of local communities, thereby gaining their support. 

 Science

By promoting sound land and water-use planning and management based on world-class science, and by educating a new generation of Mozambican scientists. 

 Sustainable Developement

Over the next thirty years, we want to raise the standard of living of every family in the Gorongosa Buffer Zone out of poverty.  This means investing on sustainable farming as well as more non-farm employment in service industries, factories and construction.  Gorongosa Park with its affiliated for-profit companies) is the economic engine that will drive this positive change.
