Gorongosa Mission Exhibition on display in shopping centre in Portugal

2 August 2012

The “Gorongosa Mission” exhibition, which is intended to promote the project for recuperation of Mozambique’s Gorongosa National Park, in Sofala province, is due to be inaugurated Thursday at a shopping centre in Matosinhos, in northern Portugal.

The exhibition, which will be on display until 8 August shows the process of recuperation of the Gorongosa National Park, which is often called Africa’s Lost Paradise.

Panels of information and television screens are just some of the methods used to illustrate how nature is rapidly responding to human support.

The managers of NorteShopping, where the exhibition will be held, will also be supporting the Gorongosa Lions project, which was launched this year and will document the conservation of lions in the park and identify and correct the threats to their recovery and continued presence in the whole of the park’s ecosystem.

There are now between 30 and 50 lions in the park and other large carnivores are only now beginning to appear.

The project for recuperation of the park is being carried out by the Gorongosa Restoration Project Foundation, a US non-profit organisation partnering the Mozambican government to protect and restore Gorongosa National Park and promote tourism there. (macauhub)
