Start of the Njesi Plateau expedition – Mozambique

Yesterday an international expedition team coordinated by BINCO left for the Njesi Plateau, one of highest inselbergs in northern Mozambique. With little information on its biodiversity available, this expedition hopes to fill a void that will help evaluate its natural and conservation value. The expedition will visit three mountain peaks, Chitiagal, Sanga and the Njesi plateau and explore multiple taxa on each through well-established rapid assessment protocols. This expedition is sponsored by the Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund, Rift Valley Corporation, Royal Geographical Society and WWF Belgium.
