Mozambique is located on the Eastern coast of Africa with 68% of its population living in rural parts of the country. This Eastern African country is home to 20 globally threatened bird species, and over 200 endemic mammal species. With over 45% of the population living beneath the poverty line, the population relies heavily on its natural resources and forests for survival.
Historically home to vast mangrove estuaries and forests, Mozambique's mangroves have been largely decimated and destroyed. This project helps local communities and villagers to restore, replant and protect these precious forest systems.
