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.
