Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique has become one of the most celebrated wildlife restoration stories in Africa. A decade of careful conservation has brought the park back from the brink. In OUR GORONGOSA, Dominique Gonçalves, a vibrant Mozambican who runs the Gorongosa elephant ecology project, shares how Gorongosa is also redefining what a national park can be. From her own work mitigating human/elephant conflict; to clubs and schools that empower girls to avoid teen marriage and pregnancy; to health clinics and nutrition training for expectant mothers and families; Gorongosa is becoming an important model for conservation in the 21st Century.
