The preparations for the 5th edition of the Annual Biodiversity Conservation Exhibition have begun: Manica 2019

After Maputo (in 2015), Gaza (2016), Zambézia (2017) and Inhambane (2018), BIOFUND brings to Manica, in August 2019, the Annual Biodiversity Exhibition: “A Cultura da Conservação e o Desenvolvimento Sustentável”!

The province of Manica presents a great biodiversity and at the same time faces many challenges for its conservation. The biodiversity of Manica ranges from beautiful mountainous landscapes – including Monte Binga, the highest point in the country and the emblematic Cabeça do Velho – to marvelous waterfalls and creeks, set in the landscape of a conservation area: the Chimanimani National Reserve, which is since 2017 one of the beneficiaries of BIOFUND funding.

In coordination with the 14th edition of the National Festival of School Games – which this year will have a motto related to conservation and bring together about 2000 young participants representing all the provinces of the country – it is intended to strengthen the importance of biodiversity conservation amongst the youth.

Manica will also be the stage for the launch of the new project “Leadership for Conservation”, under the MozBio program, which will start with training activities in conservation and dissemination of information on internships and scholarship opportunities for young people!

The 5th edition of BIOFUND’s Annual Biodiversity Exhibition in Manica will surely be an event not to be missed!
