USAID Mozambique: Rebuilding Gorongosa National Park

Restoring and protecting Gorongosa National Park is an enormous task that cannot be achieved alone.

United States Ambassador to Mozambique Douglas Griffiths discusses the collaborative effort behind the Gorongosa Restoration Project, and the important science, conservation and community-development goals being accomplished.

The United States' support to the Gorongosa Restoration Project includes the construction and maintenance of a Community Education Center where children and adults can come to learn about biodiversity conservation; the design and construction of a wildlife sanctuary and a scientific research center; park operation and maintenance; and research on the rich biodiversity of the park. The project includes many other activities, such as the reforestation of Mount Gorongosa, an Eco-Health program and community livelihood projects.
