Our Work

Conservation activities around Lake Niassa helped protect the area’s unique biodiversity and secure the livelihoods of local communities. Our goal in this area was to conserve the biological diversity of the lake through the establishment of a new protected area, referred to as the Lake Niassa Reserve. Thanks to partnership efforts, the Reserve was declared by the government of Mozambique in April 2011.
