Adopting an animal is a fantastic way to support the work at Lilongwe Wildlife Centre, Malawi’s only wildlife sanctuary.

With the exception of our dog unit, all of the animals available for adoption are currently being cared for at the Lilongwe Wildlife Centre after being rescued, injured, or orphaned. Read more in each of their stories.

To adopt an animal we ask for a donation of £25 for one year. You also have the option of making an ongoing annual adoption by ticking the box in the form. All of your donation will go towards our animal welfare and rehabilitation work.

An adoption makes a perfect gift for yourself or a loved one, and also makes a real difference for wildlife.

After making an adoption you will be emailed a receipt and personalised certificate with a biography of your chosen animal within 7 days and we will also do our best to send an update and photos during the year.

To adopt a Lilongwe Wildlife Trust animal please fill out the form below, selecting which you would like to sponsor. You will then be sent a personalised adoption certificate via email within seven days. If you would like your certificate to contain a personal message (if it is a gift, for example) or you would like the name on the certificate to be different from your own, please enter the details in the comment box.
