Zambezian coastal flooded savanna

WWF Abstract

Although many people associate floods with damage and destruction, seasonal flooding is beneficial to many ecosystems. For example, when Mozambique's Zambezi River used to surge with spring floodwaters each year, it brought nutrients and sustenance to the plants and animals of its delta. Today, dams on the Zambezi River control its flooding, but it continues to provide good habitat for a variety of species, including waterbirds and grazing animals.
