Thanks Tom for the link to the article by Jeremy Hance. Kudos to Mozambique for setting aside the Primeiras and Segundas Archipelago as a marine sanctuary. Read and noted.

Fantastic! We need more protected environments. Our flora and fauna are rapidly declining while we keep massively multiplying.

Yes Kudos to Mozambique, it sometimes seems that it is the poorer country that care most about our environment. Thanks Cal
