Nzeru the jackal
This little jackal was seen in the gardens of State House, in a pipe and looking very sheepish and weak. State House guards called the Department of National Parks & Wildlife (DNPW), who brought her straight to us. Though very fragile when she came in, we have been feeding her a variety of foods to get her strength up and it’s definitely working as she has been gaining a lot of weight and is getting much bigger.
She’s a shy character, but that’s a good thing as we would like her to go back to the wild. We make sure that she gets all the food and nutrients that she needs, whilst keeping human contact to an absolute minimum. We are currently prepping a new outdoor enclosure for her so that she can has plenty of hiding spots and enrichment on offer, so we hope to move her in soon.
Working together with Carnivore Research Malawi, we are doing what we can for her and learning lots about jackals in the process! We’re optimistic she will be able to be released back into the wild in the near future.
She’s absolutely beautiful and has warmed the hearts of everyone here at the wildlife centre….look at those eyes!
