Learn about what this looks like by exploring our flagship project on Mount Namuli.


We cultivate leaders of today and tomorrow through our Legado Fellows Initiative by applying a multidisciplinary approach to conserving the natural world and driving positive change for human societies.


We share the Legado story with the world through the film, Namuli. The film follows a team of rock climbers, biologists and conservationists set off on an unconventional expedition to one of the world’s least-explored and most threatened habitats: Mount Namuli, Mozambique.

Legado is backed by the best:

Legado is funded, in part, by the Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF) — a joint initiative of l’Agence Française de Développement, Conservation International, the European Union, the Global Environment Facility, the Government of Japan, the MacArthur Foundation and the World Bank. Additional support from a variety of funders and partners:
