Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique has become one of Africa’s most celebrated wildlife restoration stories. After a decade, Gorongosa’s large mammal population has grown to over 100,000 animals. But the Park must find a way to co-exist with the 200,000 people living in surrounding communities. Dominique Gonçalves, a young African elephant ecologist, shares the inspiring story of Gorongosa National Park and its innovative conservation model that is as committed to benefiting the communities around the park—and in particular, the girls and women who live in them—as it is to the animals and wild ecosystems. Come and be inspired by this story of Earth Optimism!
