The E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Laboratory is a hub of renewed scientific and educational activity in Mozambique, and its main goals are the documentation of Gorongosa’s vast biological richness, management of its restoration, and training of a new cadre of local conservationists and educators. It coordinates a wide range of exploratory and restoration projects, ranging from the documentation of soil biodiversity, to tracking of lion prides, to the effectiveness of reforestation effort of Mt. Gorongosa, to the pollination biology of canopy orchids. The Laboratory places a strong emphasis on dissemination of information about Gorongosa’s biological wealth, thus helping turn Mozambique into a beacon of education about biodiversity conservation, and a key destination for both tourism and research in Africa.
