Tusk Award Finalist: Congratulations Director!
Lilongwe Wildlife Trust have nominated Brighton Kumchedwa, Director of DNPW Malawi and an LWT trustee, for the prestigious Tusk Conservation Award and he has been chosen as one of three finalists. The accolade is also a reflection on Malawi’s wider response to serious wildlife crime. The winner will be announced in Cape Town, South Africa in October.

Jackals Released
Three jackals were rescued and brought in to the Wildlife Centre in September last year. They were given health checks and eventually moved to their soft release enclosure in Namitete last month, which is just outside Lilongwe in the same area they were rescued. The LWT rescue and rehabilitation team set up camera traps once they were released from their enclosure and they have been spotted several times. They appear to be doing very well and will continue to be monitored.

LWT Veterinarian lending hand for elephant move
Elephants are on the move again! African Parks is undertaking the second wave of what is the world’s biggest ever translocation of wildlife in which a total of 500 elephants are being moved, most being from Liwonde National Park to Nkhotakhota National Park. Dr. Amanda Salb, Head of the LWT Wildlife Emergency Response Unit, has been working with their team to provide extra veterinary support.
