Social Media Ambassadors

Hi, I’m Robert. I’ve recently graduated high school and am going to a local community college on a full ride soccer scholarship. I plan to get my Associates in Management to learn more about running my own organization, then moving forward to studying Wildlife Conservation at another university. I live in a small town in Michigan, in the United States, so I don’t get many chances to be with animals. But, I go to zoos as many times as I can to be with them. I love taking photos of animals, learning about them, and most importantly, protecting them. I want to use my social media skills, graphic design, and photography to get involved. The Limbe Wildlife Centre was extremely welcoming to the idea, and I hope one day I can visit the team.
Hello everyone! My name is Boy. In 2021,I volunteered at the LWC. I had the great opportunity of working with the amazing animal care staff of LWC. The experience I gained helped me a lot with achieving my biggest dream: becoming an ape caregiver.
In the last few years I’ve worked at several primate related organisations. Since 2023, I’ve been working at Artis Zoo in Amsterdam with some of our closest relatives, the western lowland gorillas and chimpanzees. As no other I know how impressive and special these primates are. It’s a blessing to work with them.
During my work at the zoo I try to educate as many people as I can about these beautiful animals. Hopefully I can use these skills for the LWC as well, together we are able to protect the animals in need!
Hi! My name is Dr. Mahesh Bhatt, I am a wildlife veterinarian from the UK and was lucky enough to work with the Limbe Wildlife Centre veterinary team in 2024.
I have worked with many different wildlife species around the world, from big cats in Africa, to elephants in Asia, and primates in the Amazon rainforest, but working with great apes was always a dream of mine and I was lucky enough to realise that dream in Limbe. It also opened me up to the other amazing species at the centre like the iconic drill monkey so I’m very happy to represent the centre from now on and continue to highlight the great work that is doing.
