Mount Moco

Mount Moco is Angola's highest mountain and an Important Bird and Biodiveristy Area. Since 2009 Michael has been working with Angolan partners to conserve the area's rich biodiversity. Work has focused on (1) growing local, indigenous forest trees and replanting them to the mountain, (2) protecting forest from grassland fires by training and equipping local community members to burn control burns around forests, (3) raising local and national awareness of the importance of Mount Moco's biodiversity, with the aim of establishing a formal protected area, and (4) introducing alternative technologies and methodologies to the local community to reduce their dependence and impact on local natural resources. You can visit the project website to learn more, or support the project via the African Bird Club website.
