Rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing wild animals injured or displaced by human activity
GRI Wildlife Rescue Programme works with the Department of National Parks and Wildlife Veterinary Unit to support welfare provisions for Zambia’s wildlife. Our efforts began in 2007 with the establishment of GRI’s Elephant Orphanage Project, and has grown to support a number of additional wildlife species over the years. The Elephant Orphanage remains GRI’s primary project with an Elephant Nursery in Lusaka and a Release Facility in Kafue National Park. Here, the orphans are gradually reintegrated back into the wild.
