Rescue news from Lilongwe Wildlife Centre in Malawi
This beautiful Sharpe’s Grysbok (a type of solitary antelope) was rescued from a road seller near the side of the road in Lake Malawi on Easter Monday. One week on and her condition has improved remarkably. We estimate her to be approximately 3 months old, but she is very small, standing at only 30cm high, and moves so fast she reminded the Wildlife Centre team of a rabbit!
Grysboks are very secretive and nocturnal so they tend to sleep during the day and then feed at night. At the moment she is under foster care as she needs round the clock care, but will soon come to the sanctuary, when the orphan care centre has been completed, and then she will be released back into the wild where she belongs.
