BRAND NEW 'MEET A LEMUR' EXPERIENCE AT NEWQUAY ZOO!



Newquay Zoo is offering visitors a brand new and unique experience - lemur feeding!

Visitors will love having the opportunity to meet the friendly family of ring-tailed lemurs at Newquay Zoo. The two baby twin lemurs born earlier in the year will add an amazing up-close insight into lemur family life.

Lemur enthusiasts will now have the opportunity to get closer to Newquay Zoo’s friendly ring-tailed lemurs by venturing onto their island with a bowl of tasty treats for the primate residents.

Stewart Muir, Zoo Director said; ‘‘Lemurs have always been extremely popular animals in the Zoo and they are one of the few animals that we can safely allow the public to view at close quarters. It is fantastic that the team at the Zoo will now be offering visitors this unique and enjoyable experience, helping to raise vital funds for our Gems of the Jungle project.’’

The opportunity to meet the two new baby lemur twins will add to the exciting experience and at only £45.00 for two people, including free entry to the Zoo and a free hot drink, it is an amazing and affordable adventure.

Polly Vogel, Education Officer said; ‘‘This is a really great chance to meet some of our animals up close. The launch of lemur feeding will commence at 3.30 pm on 11th April. The lemurs are so friendly and inquisitive that I’m sure this will be a great experience for all ages.’’

This is an amazing not to be missed opportunity and pre-booking is essential. For more information on booking your lemur feed, conservation projects at the Zoo and our fantastic year long events programme, please telephone 0844 474 2244 (local rate)
