Pandrillus - Limbe Wildlife Centre, Cameroon

Member Synopsis

Limbe Wildlife Center was founded in 1993 as a collaborative effort between the Government of Cameroon and Pandrillus. At that time, Peter and Liza were doing field work in Cameroon for the drill survey. In too many places, orphan primates were encountered with nowhere to go – chained on the roadside, locked in storage sheds, displayed in noisy hotel garden bars and kept as lonely individuals in private homes – from the most remote village to the upscale Bastos neighborhood in Yaounde. There was no facility for these animals in Cameroon and taking them all to Nigeria was not an option. The problem was particularly acute for chimpanzees; in just 6 months of field work we had compiled a database of nearly 50 chimpanzees needing a new home.
