We’re working towards a future where every wild animal in Malawi is free from human-inflicted suffering.  Each individual counts, whether it’s an orphaned monkey or a critically endangered rhino caught in a snare.  Our award-winning rescue and rehabilitation projects below offer a lifeline to victims of wildlife crime or human-wildlife conflict, working alongside other LWT projects addressing the roots of the problem.
