Monkey Developments

Development of our new monkey enclosure is well under way.

As I'm sure many of you know we have been raising funds for our new Vervet monkey enclosure to give them a bigger and better home. Work is well under way, the house is already built and in position, the posts and mesh are on order and most of the outside furnishing is done. We are aiming for the opening at Easter. We have almost reached our target but still need a bit more money.

Bill & Ted's excellent adventure

Our two male baby pygmy goats are now a week old and exploring their enclosure under the watchful eye of their mum Vanilla. The two energetic kids have been tackling the obstacles with ease, their favourite being the big oak tree.

The bigger of the two is called Bill (he has more black on him) and the smaller is Ted.
They also got to meet their dad, Elvis, today as when they were born he was too boisterous and had to be removed. They seem to be getting on well so far.
