Why we do what we do?

For us, it is essential to understand that the success of conservation efforts relies heavily on the well-being of the people who share the land with wildlife. We believe the Integrated Conservation & Development (ICD) concept promotes wildlife coexistence with communities and increases conservation impact for people.


This strategy aims to achieve both biodiversity conservation and improve the livelihoods of local communities.

Coming from a Wildlife veterinarian and Law enforcement background, our passion and work is to safeguard Mozambique's natural capital by fostering biodiversity conservation.


A healthy and diverse ecosystem provides essential services – provisioning resources, regulating climate and water, offering cultural enrichment, and supporting critical ecological functions.  By focusing on wildlife populations and their vital role within the ecosystem, we aim to ensure a sustainable future.
