BUSHBUCK RESCUE: MEET MADDIE

Project: Rescue and Rehabilitation

Maddie came to us last month, at only one week or so old. She was rescued from the bushmeat trade from Nkota Nkota, in collaboration with African Parks. Maddie was a bit dehydrated when she arrived, and was tired from the long journey. Thankfully, she has picked up quickly, having gained 3kg over the last 3 weeks.

Maddie is currently being fed by two LWC volunteers, in an effort to minimize habituation. Since she is still young, she gets fed every couple of hours, from 6AM to 9PM—keeping those 2 volunteers very busy!
