NEW LION CONSERVATION FILM FOR EDUCATORS– Projecto Leões da Gorongosa is proud to announce the release of a new educational film, free to wildlife and conservation educators across the globe.  Set in Gorongosa National Park in Central Mozambique, where a bold new effort is underway to recover a historic lion stronghold, the film narrated by Tonga Torcida one of our bright emerging conservationists highlights the highly threatened status of lions in the wild and the critical role they play in African ecosystems.

The film is produced in both Portuguese with English sub-titles and Sena.
