The effort by the Mozambique government to create Africa’s largest, most biologically diverse city park remains a work-in-progress. How the human psyche manages to endure fickle pros and cons that add up in the tired mind, or broken heart, on a long-suffering Continent, is not something easily given to rhetorical, geopolitical, or economic indicators. If experience be our guide, all humans need basically the same things; and where thoughts and hopes are no more heightened and attuned than in protected places; sacred spaces; amidst the fanfare of wild creatures who coevolved with all of our ancestors. Mozambicans know this to be true.
