The Lunga Luswishi Wildlife Project is giving rescued, injured and abandoned primates a second chance at life in the wild in Zambia.
The monitoring team prepares them pre-release to give them the best chance of survival, whilst the dedicated anti-poaching unit are on the front line, battling to make safe the areas in which they will rediscover their freedom. As you can read from the project’s latest report, cruel snares have been cleared, illegally poached wildlife confiscated, poachers apprehended and, perhaps most importantly, the released monkeys under surveillance have continued to thrive. The project has even recorded their first ever sighting of African Wild Dog in the area – testament to the security the project is providing for all wildlife.
