Limbe Wildlife Centre - Long Term Vet Needed (minimum 6 months)


Since 1993, the Limbe Wildlife Centre (LWC) is a wildlife rehabilitation education centre or confiscated animals victims of poaching and illegal trade. Established in the Limbe Zoological Garden, South-West Region, Republic of Cameroon. It is managed by the Ministry of Forestry and Wildlife (MINFOF) and the Pandrillus Foundation, an US non-profit NGO also registered in Nigeria and Cameroon.

The ultimate goal of the LWC is to enable rehabilitated individuals of threatened species to be reintroduced for restoring wild population when and where appropriate in the future, while supporting national law enforcement efforts. They are looking to recruit a vet with atleast 2 years experience to join their team for a minimum of 6 months. Primate experience is not a necessity but would of course be advantageous.

If you are yearning for adventure or looking to further your career in the most exciting way imaginable, then why not come and work for Maun Animal Welfare Society?

From our clinic in Maun we run Botswana’s largest CNVR (collect, neuter, vaccinate, return) operation: sterilising and vaccinating the region’s domestic dog and feral cat population. We also dispatch veterinary teams to remote areas where villagers live side-by-side with Botswana's rich and varied wildlife. Our work helps to prevent the transmission of rabies and canine distemper: diseases which can decimate wildlife including the African Wild Dog, lions, leopards and cheetahs.
