Not for Profit
The reserve is a working model where profits generated
are re-invested in the local area.  The reserve is
commercial in its outlook but re-invests 100%
of the funds it generates. 
This the balance between
Compassion and Commerce.

1. Sustainable solutions for local people …
We believe in solutions which are stable in the long term … where local people benefit and participate in the development, running and success of the reserve
Medical clinics
Agricultural projects
Fish restocking programmes
Employment

2. Education
The major portion of the funds generated is invested via in-school distance learning programmes backed up with wildlife based, residential camps for Mozambican children. We teach skills ranging from life skills such as team membership to wildlife management. Our PhD researchers act as personal teachers for students stimulating interest in Mozambique’s growing game and tourist industry.

3. World class animal behaviour research
The reserve is one of WEPT’s permanent bases where long term (75 year) research programmes covering the indigenous equids and closely associated species will be undertaken. Research is managed by a steering committee of Oxford University, Bristol Vet School and the Natural Animal Centre providing high quality co-ordinated results which will help in WEPT’s goals of stemming the decline in equid
