Mozambican Distinguished in the US for Advocating Sustainable Livestock Exploitation

Mozambican Mateus Mutemba received this Saturday (8), in Dallas, Texas, United States of America, the Capstick Hunting Heritage award, for the defenders of wildlife.

Mutemba was, until the end of 2021, director-general of the National Administration of Conservation Areas (ANAC). The former administrator of Gorongosa National Park is also a member of the International Coordination Council of UNESCO’s Man and the Biosphere programme.

The “Capstick”, presented at the Dallas Safari Club’s 40th Annual Convention, honours the work of Peter H. Capstick, an American hunter and writer whose respect for wildlife has driven the promotion of a hunting legacy that ensures its sustainability.

It is given to individuals who demonstrate support for that legacy through, among others, education or humanitarian causes. “Mutemba has certainly embodied these values as a dedicated guardian of our hunting heritage,” said the award’s organization quoted by VOA.

“I hope this recognition of my work will serve as an inspiration to others in the field, in my country and region,” Mutemba said upon receiving prestigious award.

Mutemba promised to continue “the effort to promote the integration of conservation and human development with the perspective of benefiting humans, wild animals and biodiversity, for many years to come.”

At the same event, Zambeze Delta Safaris and Mark Haldane, a partner of the enterprise located in Coutada 11, Marromeu Complex, in Sofala, were distinguished.

Zambeze Delta Safaris received the award for “Best Pavilion”, and Haldane received the award for “Best Safari Operator of the year”.
