S.L.O.W (Slow Loris Outreach Week)

We are hosting a short film premiere evening to launch this year’s Little Fireface Projects S.L.O.W (Slow Loris Outreach Week) and would love you to join us!

 

We have supported this field project in Java for some time now and are delighted to be the venue to launch this video. The projects aim is to save the Javan slow loris (one of the 25 most endangered primates in the world) via ecology, education and empowerment. We will be showing SpiresMedia’s award winning campaign video to end the illegal trafficking of the critically endangered Javan slow loris. The video won first prize in the ZGAP Clip Award 2016.

There will be a guest speaker who will also hold an auction of original paintings of Slow loris from an artist in Java. We will be giving an update from our Director Nic Dunn on the work at EAZA’s Prosimian group.

We will then finish with a guided tour around the zoo to see some of our nocturnal wonders!

 

LFP merchandise will be on sale and light refreshments will be available.

We really hope that you will be able to join us in giving S.L.O.W a rousing start! Look out for the LFP mascot “Tereh” throughout the week where she can be found out and about the local area: Bag-packing at Morrisons, beach cleaning with the Beavers, at the Botanical Gardens for a Halloween celebration and even climbing trees with Teign Trees!

Please R.S.V.P by email or telephone to julie@shaldonwildlifetrust.org.uk 01626872234

(Ticket purchase not required but a donation to go to the vital work of the LFP would be greatly appreciated)

Venue: Shaldon Scout hut (located in the car park adjacent to the zoo) on Sunday October 23rd 6.00p.m. for a 6.30 p.m. start.

Happy Colouring!   5 Facts About Pangolins:   Pangolins, also known as scaly anteaters, are unique creatures that are covered in hard, plate-like scales To protect themselves, they curl into balls like hedgehogs. They are the most trafficked mammal in the world because people want their meat and scales. A pangolin’s tongue can be longer than its body when fully extended is can be 40 cm long! Pangolins have large, curved claws that they use for excavating ant and termite nests                     ...
