Zoo News – March 2022

21st April, 2022

New Arrivals

Spring has sprung here in Emerald Park with the birth of several baby ring tailed lemurs. Mams “Charlie” and “Diana” gave birth to a single baby each, while experienced mother “Dolly” gave birth to a set of twins. All babies are doing well and are starting move around. They can be seen with their mothers in the Lemur Woods.

On a sad note, our beautiful reindeer “Princess” passed away after a short illness in March. “Princess” was a geriatric animal that had lived in Emerald Park for most of her life where she was a firm favourite with both zookeepers and visitors alike. She will be missed.
