Our flagship project on Mount Namuli, in northern Mozambique, engages world-renowned scientists, local community activists and conservation leaders to secure a vibrant future for the mountain and the people who depend on it.

Scaling success and lessons learned from Mount Namuli across four other key inselbergs in Mozambique to protect some of the richest and most-underprotected biodiversity in the Eastern Afromontane ecoregion.

The big conservation and development challenges in our world require strong future leaders. Through the Legado Fellows Program, we help train, equip, and empower young leaders from around the world.


We’ve teamed up with Google Jump and filmmaker Ross Henry to create a 3-minute Virtual Reality film, Mountains = Water = Life, to take you right to the heart of the mountain. So, get your VR goggles ready and check the film out in English below or, you can see the film in Portuguese here. If you don’t have VR goggles, no worries at all – you can still check out the film on YouTube and explore the 360 view of Mount Namuli by clicking and dragging around the screen.
