Protecting Mozambique's Wildlife

In May 2024, an important activity took place at the headquarters of Mozambique’s National Conservation Administration (ANAC) to support and strengthen the fight against wildlife crime. This initiative was a collaborative effort involving ANAC, the National Criminal Investigation Service (SERNIC), TRACE Wildlife Forensics Network, and the Mozambique Wildlife Alliance (MWA).

MWA played a crucial role in processing the seized ivory by undertaking tasks such as weighing, identification, and the creation of a comprehensive database. Additionally, DNA samples were collected to help determine the origins of the ivory. This meticulous work is essential for tracing illegal trade routes and understanding the broader impact of wildlife trafficking.

Through this collaborative approach, we aim to ensure the preservation of endangered species and the natural heritage of Mozambique for future generations.
