BE A PROUD ADOPTIVE PARENT
You can now adopt Jacka, Bebe Maiombe, Zizi, Zeze, Caliado, Matiaba, Kuxie and The Livingstone Herd. After you have completed your donation, we will send your Digital Gift Pack, which includes the Fact Sheet of your adopted rescue and your Certificate of Adoption. The pack will be issued on your name (or the name of your choice) and sent to your e-mail address as soon as possible. You can also follow up regular updates, including videos and photographs of your rescue, on our official Facebook and Instagram pages. We are ensuring we spend all money raised on caring for our rescues, so please excuse the lack of cuddly toy and goody bag! Ours is a constant emergency situation requiring urgent care of the animals and your symbolic adoption makes our work possible.
Jacka was rescued by WildatLife (Wild@Life) after being kept as entertainment in a busy restaurant and being dressed up in clothing. He was a baby when we found him and we provided him with a dedicated caregiver. He is now thriving and has grown up significantly. He loves his Comfort Blanket and mangos.
Adopt Bebe Maiombe
Maiombe came into our basecamp as a little girl. She is without a doubt the most adventurous and mischievous Chimpanzee we care for. She loves spending her time practicing her climbing skills on the trees and has a very special bond with Chimpanzee Zizi.
Zizi was rescued by WildatLife from a private back garden, where she was held captive in a rusty small cage and acted as protector of Chimp Zeze, whom was also in the same cage with her. She has a heart of gold and is a mothering figure to our other orphans in rehabilitation at our Basecamp in Angola.
Zeze was rescued with Zizi from a small cage. We didn’t think he would make it when we first laid eyes on him. He had such a deep wound on his face inflicted by a machete when he was stolen from the forests, after his family was murdered by poachers, as well as a bullet lodged in his testicular area. With our care he survived and now he thrives. He is the biggest eater of them all, he is a fighter.
Kuxie is a Moustached Guenon that was attached to the back of the cage of Chimpanzees Zizi and Zeze. She is an agile monkey and loves to spend her days jumping around the trees in Basecamp. She gets on with all the rescued chimpanzees and is very adventurous.
Matiaba is the youngest baby we had so far, only 4 months old and the most little Chimp we have at basecamp. He was rescued from the hands of poachers and suffered malnutrition and various cuts on his tiny body. Now he receives lots of love and care from his caregiver.
Adopt Livingstone Herd
Our herd of orphan elephants, who are safe at our Sanctuary in Zambia, is formed of Bop, Danny, Madinda, Mashumbi, Lewa, Nandi, Sekuti, Muyani, Nyami and our lovely Sox the Hippo (who believes he is an elephant and part of the Livingstone Herd).
Caliado was rescued from the illegal wildlife trafficking. He was chained inside a dark container and suffered horrific abuse. Our team took him to safety and provided medical expertise, he is a fragile boy but slowly gains some confidence back in his new enriched environment.
Adopt Lioness Dona
Dona is a sweet-natured girl and has stolen many hearts in Our partnering Sanctuary in Burkina Faso. She loves people and will happily come to the fence to say Hello to her human fans. Dona also loves her lion family but she’s a girl who enjoys some quality ‘me’ time. Perfectly content to sit away from the others, Dona quietly grooms herself and snoozes contentedly under the African sky.
Adopt Lioness Nala
Nala is a West African Lioness who was left to starve at a Zoo in a Burkina Faso. Wildatlife(Wild@Life) implemented an emergency mission to support her and the other 46 animals. She has since recovered remarkably well. Nala has no tail because many years ago a tiger attacked her at the Zoo.
Adopt Lioness Alma
Alma is our oldest rescue and is totally Blind but she is remarkably intelligent and uses her sense of smell to navigate around the outside enclosures without any issues at all. She occasionally joins in with the antics of Nala, Mala and Dona but due to her age, she prefers her quite spots under the trees.
Adopt Lioness Mala
Mala is highly sociable and the youngest in the Pride, getting on well with her enclosure mates, Nala, Dona and Alma. This confident girl has sociable nature and she plays an important role as the ‘social glue’ that bonds this highly cohesive girl pride together.
Adopt Lioness Shadow
We sadly give a final farewell to Shadow the Lion. It is important to honour each animal we work to rescue, who passes away, with an individualised
tribute. Shadow lived inside a zoo for 8 years of his life. WildatLife e.V(Wild@Life) was the only charity in the world that rushed to his side but sadly the damaged done by a recent flood was irreversible. We take comfort in the fact that, for the first time in his 8 years of captivity, he had the best care and the world fighting for his survival.
Sox the Hippo believes he is an elephant and part of the Livingstone herd which is formed of Elephants, Bop, Danny, Madinda, Mashumbi, Lewa, Nandi, Sekuti, Muyani and Nyami. He loves to spend his day swimming and was named Sox because of his adorable and unique pink feet.
Carly was rescued from Gamji Zoo of Horror Nigeria. Her cage was flooded and she was left to starve. She was severely traumatised was banging her head on the concrete floor. We closed down the zoo and gave Carly the care she deserves. She now lives happily with Baboon Nesli and together they run rings around our caregivers.
Nesli, our infant Baboon, was kept as a pet and the “owner” did not want to care for her anymore. So we came to her rescue. After a short introduction to Carly, they started living together and keeping each other company. Carly and Nesli makes a wonderful troop and are our mischievous duo.
WildatLife rescued Ton, our infant baboon from a life of misery. Ton was locked
inside a small bird cage at a wet market in Lagos after being poached from
the wild and his mother murdered, he had no hope of escape. Now he
lives at our partnering sanctuary and his days are spent eating and playing
in the sunshine. He is a very kind, animative and inquisitive boy.
Penny is a white bellied Pangolin we rescued from wet-market. She is victim of illegal wildlife trafficking and was about to be boiled alive so that her scales could be used in traditional Asian medicine. Pangolins are the most trafficked mammal in the world and Wildatlife is working hard to rescue, rehabilitate and protect Pangolins like Penny in Africa.
