Gorongosa National Park adopts a 21st century conservation model of balancing the needs of wildlife and people, protecting and saving this beautiful wilderness, returning it to its rightful place as one of Africa’s greatest parks.
They achieve this by working in four core areas:
- Conservation: By protecting Gorongosa’s beautiful animals and landscapes, they make sure future generations have a chance to experience this special place.
- Community: By providing assistance to farmers, educational programs, and health care, they improve the well-being of local communities, thereby gaining their support.
- Science: By studying how all the parts of Gorongosa’s complex web of life fit together, they can make informed conservation and management decisions.
- Sustainable Tourism: By developing sustainable tourism, they 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.
Painted wolves were reintroduced into the Gorongosa National Park in 2018 and 2019, and are thriving!
