Threatened Marine Megafauna within the Bazaruto Archipelago National Park




A total of 14 threatened marine species are present within the Bazaruto Archipelago National Park (BANP). Of these species, one is listed as critically endangered, two as endangered and eleven as vulnerable to extinction. Additionally eight other marine megafauna species, which are currently listed as data deficient (I.U.C.N., 2015) but may soon be updated with a threatened status, reside within the BANP. Despite these 14 species being globally recognized as threatened by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, only six are protected under Mozambican legislation. Below, further details are provided on each of these species vulnerability and protective status.
