Adopt Oscar


Oscar the Baboon

Oscar arrived to us in May 2015. Responding to a call from a concerned citizen, our WERU vet Amanda travelled to Mchinji, near the border with Zambia, to pick up a yellow baboon that was destined for the pet trade and take him back to our rescue centre. Fortunately, he’s very bright and alert and is currently settling into his temporary home in our quarantine area and we’ve named him Oscar.

Once his health checks are complete we’ll be able to introduce him to our other baboons and hopefully be able to one day give him a second chance in the wild. He was around 7 months old when he arrived and already quite a character! Your support will help us to ensure the best possible care for Oscar and you’ll be able to follow his journey through his rehabilitation here at Lilongwe Wildlife Centre.
