More animals came to Lilongwe Wildlife Centre for care in 2022 than in any year before. We received a total of 158 animals, including 39 pangolins (another record!). Thanks to your generous support, we were able to provide veterinary care, nutrition and rehabilitation to injured, trafficked and orphaned wildlife.

Our Wildlife Emergency Response Unit (WERU) responds to a large number of calls each year for animals in need, many of which have been injured from snares, traps or bullet wounds due to poaching or human-wildlife conflict. In the past year WERU has treated elephants, pangolins, bushbucks, servals, jackals, baboons, hyenas, vervets, roan and zebras. Of course, no animal is too small for our team, so we’ve also rescued hedgehogs and a microbat!
