The Limbe Wildlife Centre (LWC), a wildlife rescue and rehabilitation project situated in the small town of Limbe in the Southwest province of Cameroon, was started in 1993 by the Pandrillus Foundation, a conservation NGO, and the government of Cameroon. Since this time it has become home to a variety of critically endangered wildlife species including chimpanzees, western lowland and Cross River gorillas. Most of the primates in care of the center are orphans whose families were killed by poachers. Others were illegally kept as pets or offered for sale on local markets. They received their first rescued gorilla in June 1994, when a male called Prince arrived at the approximate age of one year old, and he died three weeks later .

Their current gorilla population is divided in two groups:

CHELLA

EMMA

BENITO

JUMBO

PITCHOU

AKIBA

TINU

ABBEY

BATEK

BRIGHTER

TWIGS

ARNAUD
