MT NAMULI, Mozambique: Biodiversity and Conservation

2007 - 2009

Darwin Initiative Award

- Zambézia

Mt Namuli at 2419 m is the high point of a massif and associated granite peaks situated near Gurué town, Zambézia Province in north-central Mozambique, and the second-highest peak in the country. It is surrounded at lower altitudes by extensive tea plantations, now being rehabilitated, and has perhaps the best agro-ecological conditions in the country. Increasingly, people are settling in the area and slowly encroaching up the slopes. Although recognised for many years as being of particular biological interest, Namuli is not formally protected, is little-explored and the conservation threats to its biodiversity have not yet been properly documented.
