Help Care for Disabled Great Apes - Ghaa & Twiggs
Degradation of habitats, poaching, and live animal trade have led to the rapid decline of hundreds of species. In the Central African region alone, monkeys are hunted and poached at alarming rates, including all three African great apes.
GreaterGood.org works with The Limbe Wildlife Centre (LWC) to provide a second chance to orphaned, injured, and abused wild animals as a result of these trades in Cameroon. LWC works to reinforce the implementation of Cameroonian wildlife laws and provides sanctuary for wildlife seized by authorities. Many of these animals arrive as orphans after their mothers are killed while others have been kept as pets in inhumane conditions.
The main focus of the center is to rehabilitate these animals and release them back into the wild. However, due to injuries sustained during capture from the wild, some of the animals can never be returned to the wild. This is the case for chimpanzee Ghaa and gorilla Twiggs.
Both Ghaa and Twiggs depend on LWC, their forever home, in order to maintain their well-being. The long-term goal is to ensure both Ghaa and Twiggs thrive in fully enriched environments where they will continue to grow.
You can help. Just $10 provides medication and supplements for 1 week. You can help provide the care Ghaa and Twiggs deserve.
The Limbe Wildlife Centre (LWC) is based in the South-West region of Cameroon. They are working to tackle the illegal wildlife trade and to conserve Cameroonian wildlife through rescue and rehabilitation, education outreach and community development programmes. Their mission is to prevent the extinction of the highly endangered primates and other wildlife in the CrossSanaga region. Their vision is a world in which humans and primates and other wildlife peacefully co-exist.
