Threatened Species Guide
The coastline of Mozambique is 2,770 km long and has a total Economic Exclusion Zone (EEZ) size of just under 572,000 km2. Conservation Officer, Lauren Warnell, has produced this comprehensive threatened species guide in order to clarify how marine species are protected in Mozambique. The guide lists all marine species known to be found in this area that are listed on the IUCN Red List as Vulnerable to extinction, Endangered or Critically Endangered – collectively known as “threatened species”. It further provides details of how these species are protected under Mozambican law and international wildlife conventions. We hope that this document will help to facilitate awareness for the conservation of threatened marine species in Mozambique and aid the enforcement of current legislation.
