Limbobos Transfrontier Conservation Area Candidates for World Heritage Site

Mozambique intends to apply for the Limbobos Transfrontier Conservation Area (ACFT-Libombos) as a world heritage site, announced a source from the National Administration of Conservation Areas (ANAC).

The initiative will contribute to the development of that area of marine conservation, in addition to improving research and monitoring activities of existing species and their landscapes, according to Luis Buchir, administrator of the environmental protection area of Maputo, quoted today by Radio Mozambique.

The official made the announcement in Kigali, capital of Rwanda, during the African Congress of Protected Areas, which took place between July 18 and 23.

The ACFT-Libombos is shared by Mozambique, South Africa and Essuatíni, countries that are committed to an integrated management of resources and to promote tourism in the region, said Buchir.
