Understanding the mechanisms limiting the buffalo population in Niassa National Reserve, Mozambique

African Buffalo Symposium

- Niassa

The Niassa National Reserve (NNR), Mozambique is one of the vastest protected areas in Africa (42,140 km2) and includes around 39,000 local residents within the limits of the reserve. NNR suffered from 10 years of independence war (1964-1974) and 15 years of civil war (1977-1992), during which wildlife population decreased substantially. Despite important conservation efforts, the density of ungulate community remains strikingly low compared to other similar savanna systems, especially buffalo which is considered as a key asset for the local trophy hunting industry and has logically become a management priority for the NNR. We addressed this issue through three main protocols.
