The Limbe Wildlife Centre (LWC) is a wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and conservation education project in Cameroon. It was founded 1993 and is managed by the Ministry of Forestry and Wildlife (MINFOF) and the Pandrillus Foundation. Pandrillus aims to protect Cameroonian wildlife in collaboration with the government to enforce wildlife law, inspire a new generation of conservationists and bridge the gap between welfare and conservation.

Interested in Visiting or Volunteering?


Limbe Wildlife Center emphasizes conservation, education, and the ongoing development of the facility. Limbe is looking for volunteers even if they don’t have degrees or experience in animal husbandry. Construction, electrical and automotive skills are all needed. So are administrative, management, fundraising and public relations skills. And if you’ve done conservation or development work in Africa, it will be a plus.


Visitors are welcome to come to the centre to see the rescued animals living in well-cared for, healthy, social groups and in an enriched environment. Visitors can take guided or self-guided tours and buy souvenirs in the Center’s Gift Shop. There’s also a restaurant nearby.
