Orphan appeal

Orphaned animals need your help

Orphan season is one of the busiest times of the year for our team at the Lilongwe Wildlife Centre, when we receive a large number of abandoned or orphaned infants that need high levels of support and around-the-clock care. Running from November to March, it coincides with both the vervet monkey birthing season and Malawi’s rainy season, when vegetation and food are plentiful. 

We urgently need donations to help us buy food and medicine and to provide rehabilitation so that these animals have a second chance at life. Animals such as Biscuit, pictured below (top), who was rescued after her mother was killed and eaten. Thankfully, Biscuit is now safe in the care of her new foster mum, Lulu (pictured below, bottom), and will be given every chance to be released back into the wild, where she belongs.

HOW YOUR SUPPORT COULD HELP

£5 could pay for a TB test for a rescued monkey to make sure it is healthy enough to be integrated into a troop.

£15 could buy ten days' worth of antibiotics to treat sick and injured orphans.

£25 could support two weeks of care for an orphaned monkey, including health checks, food and enrichment items to help them learn vital foraging skills.

£50 could pay for enough milk supplies for the orphans in our care for one week.

£100 could buy a heat lamp to keep infant animals warm during critical periods of rehabilitation.

£500 could cover food costs for all wildlife residents for one week.
