Where We Work
Our work encompasses the 38,000km2 Mozambican region of the Greater Limpopo Trans-Frontier Conservation Area (GTFCA). Consisting of three National Parks; Limpopo, Banhine and Zinave, four private wildlife reserves, and contiguous wildlife corridor areas.
The GLTFCA is listed by the IUCN as one of Africa’s most important lion conservation areas - the Greater Limpopo Lion Conservation Unit. It is one of only 10 remaining 'lion strongholds' on the continent subsequent of the high density found in South Africa's Kruger National Park.
However, wild lions ranging across the Mozambican
component of the GLTFCA are under threat and are
persisting below their potential carrying capacity and
within a small portion of their potential natural range.
The landscape boasts incredible species biodiversity; lion,
leopard, hyena, cheetah, wild dog, roan, sable, many
endemic bird species and more, found amongst pristine
habitats from the sandveldt regions of Limpopo NP to the
open savannah grasslands and wetlands of Banhine NP.
Preserving these ecosystems and improving the connectivity
for dispersal dependent species between the Mozambican
National Parks and those of Zimbabwe and South Africa
are a crucial part of our work in this landscape.
