It was a busy week for keepers and volunteers at the Trust this week as we welcomed the arrival of two Male Red-ruffed lemurs from Cologne in Germany.

The brothers were sent as part of the managed European Breeding Programme (EEP) for this endangered primate, one of the top 25 most at threat from extinction in the world. Soon they will be joined by a female to begin a new family. We have not bred Red-ruffed lemurs for a number of years following the loss of our original breeding female, so we are naturally very excited. 

In order to establish this new group, our current four males, grandfather Thiemo, sons Jack and Jude and grandson Jackson, will be travelling to Avifauna in the Netherlands where they will live in an extremely large walk through exhibit. 

The two boys are settling in well and visitors can see them in their new environment at Lemur heights here at the Trust.
