Lilongwe Wildlife Trust (LWT), responsible for running Malawi’s only wildlife rehabilitation centre and a key campaigner in Malawi’s fight against wildlife crime, has shared some recent news from on the ground in Liwonde, as well as some interesting ways you can get involved with their work. Find out more below.
Last year, one of Liwonde’s two adult male lions, ‘LM3’, was pushed out of his pride by his brother and moved off into the north of the park. He began spending time with two females released into Liwonde as part of the initial reintroduction of the species from South Africa in 2018. LWT quickly got to work searching for tracks along roads and deploying camera traps in well-used areas to follow their movements. Since then, their little pride has tripled and now consists of nine animals! Clearly LM3’s had no trouble making this his new home. Find out more with some fantastic photos on this Instagram post.
