Brevard Zoo recently sent an environment teaching suitcase to the Limbe Wildlife Centre (LWC) in the South West Province Cameroon, West Central Africa.  The Limbe Wildlife Centre is situated at the foot of Mount Cameroon, which boasts the second highest levels of biodiversity in Africa and is home to many locally endemic and critically endangered primates such as the vellerosus chimpanzee, the Preuss’s guenon and the drill.

The Zoo is also working with Limbe to set up a webcam which will allow for live feed back to the Zoo allowing visitors a glimpse into the world of African sanctuaries.
