Gorongosa National Park is one of the places with the largest wildlife in Mozambique, populated by an impressive diversity of plants and animals, some of which are found nowhere else in the world.
To celebrate World Wildlife Day, the rangers and the other Park employees used this opportunity to plant native trees and also distributed several plant seedlings throughout the communities around the Park.
During the ceremony, the Park Warden Pedro Muagura, praised the efforts of the rangers who daily dedicate themselves in protecting the Park’s biodiversity, highlighting the protection of species threatened by extinction.
This year, the Park expects to distribute around 35 thousand seedlings of native species and fruit trees that aim to recover degraded areas with a focus on the areas surrounding the community, family and school forests.
A saying in the local language Sena: “Miti ngai bwerese mitambo” (Can the trees call the clouds).
