The Society's Chris Galliers says a memorandum of understanding signed in Maputo this week looks to address wildlife crime in the region.
He says Mozambican officials have recognised that many of their citizens have been responsible for poaching incidents in South Africa and within their own borders.
Galliers says poaching cannot be tackled within state boundaries, as criminal syndicates operate on an international scale.
"I think it's a great step forward because it really does open the door for better collaboration between the three countries to try and reduce poaching in both our country and theirs.
"So as a joint effort, I think it offers great potential and hopefully together we'll be able to reduce the influence of these internationals syndicates in our own backyards," he said.
