Since 1994, HALO has destroyed over 95,000 landmines across Angola, allowing devastated communities to rebuild after years of conflict.
Season by season, the National Geographic team have returned to the source of the Okavango, supported by HALO every step of the way. They are documenting vital data, information needed to develop plans to protect this precious wilderness.

“We have made some incredible discoveries, including 30 new species to science. None of this would have been possible without the help of The HALO Trust.”
(Steve Boyes, National Geographic.)
The National Geographic team is using their scientific and survey work to build connections among governments, non-governmental organizations, and local communities to help establish the sustainable management of the Okavango’s source rivers in Angola. HALO’s work, clearing the landmines of Cuando Cubango, Moxico and Bié, is fundamental to achieving this vision.
