In more than a decade, Exxon-Mobil has invested two million in the Palanca Negra conservation project.

Over the past 15 years, Exxon-Mobil has spent two million dollars on the Giant Sable Antelope conservation project. The company's investment enabled the restoration of the Cangandala National Park – where this animal is located – as well as the purchase of GPS collars, among other actions aimed at the preservation of this species.


Alongside the restoration of the park – located in Malanje – and the collars, the investment also made it possible to carry out scientific studies and sponsor events around this species, among others.

Cited by Angop, the official clarified that the collars with GPS - which were put on in 2009, when this animal was last captured - are already reaching the end of their life and, consequently, are no longer transmitting the signal clearly. for this species to be properly supervised.

This scenario, he considered, translates as dangerous for the animal, once its monitoring is lost, the risks of extinction increase, writes Angop.

So, speaking at the workshop about the current state of this animal, Armando Afonso informed that the company intends to maintain its support with regard to the preservation of this species.
