Legado began in 2014 to address the growing need to create conservation solutions that put mountain people at the center of preserving the world’s most threatened and most biodiverse mountains— the water towers of our world. With the help of people like you, we’ve made big steps forward in helping achieve this vision.
As a result, we’re taking the lessons learned on Mount Namuli and applying them to our second Sky Island in Mozambique: Mount Ribaue.
Mount Ribaue is 175 miles from Mount Namuli and, like Namuli, it is home to critical biodiversity and key communities of people working to make a life for themselves and their family. Ribaue is the first Tropical Important Plant Area to be designated in Mozambique and as a Sky Island is less than 3% of Mozambique landmass while being home to 30% of its biodiversity.
Thank you to our supporters at Mulago, LUSH Charity Pot, and RARE for helping us launch our second Sky Island. Their backing, along with that of many generous individuals, has advanced a thriving future for mountain biodiversity and mountain communities.
We would be honored for you to champion this growth as well. Here’s how you can join us:
We will be sharing a great deal more about Ribaue in the coming months and years and we look forward to taking you along on this journey.
