Where We Are
What We Do
We have a permanent trapping system in 5 sites spread-out in Lumbo so we can cover as much habit as possible.
While our traps are catching frogs, lizards and snakes, we also actively search for species by lifting rocks or digging.
Not much is known in terms of biodiversity in Northern Mozambique, so we are building a reference collection of the species we are encountering.
