We were delighted to welcome Prof. Anna Nekaris, lecturer of primatology at
Oxford-Brookes university and the world's leading authority on Slow loris this October. We were also joined by the directors of BIAZA, EAZA and the ZSL, who all came along to see the new exhibit.
Prof Nekaris officially opened the new 'Forest at night' nocturnal house exhibit and in the evening gave a fascinating talk to a large audience about the plight of this beautiful animal in the wild, and her conservation work through the Little Fireface Project based in Java.
The project is supported by the Trust and we work closely with Anna and her team to raise awareness of the threats facing these adorable primates. Find out more about the work of the project and how the Trust is involved on our conservation pages.

This is the latest baby to be born in Java and
has been named 'Devon' after Anna's visit
to the Trust.
