Strengthening bio-monitoring for protected area management in Chimanimani National Park, Mozambique

Alfredo Feliciano Laquene Gotine

This internship will provide practical field and protected area management experience to a young Mozambican conservation scientist, whilst tackling one of the pressing needs in Chimanimani National Park, which was re-designated from National Reserve status in 2020. The focus of the internship will be on applying field techniques and knowledge of ecology to support the building and implementation of a bio-monitoring programme in Chimanimani. This is in the context of the overall management plan revision that was completed in 2021 and the need for various aspects of support for data collection and information management, for both wildlife and community-focused activities.
