Our Ring-tailed Lemurs have been reunited into one enclosure thanks to funds raised by visitors

Posted by CDoyle on 25/10/2019

Our Animal Team have been busy building a new enclosure for the Ring-tailed Lemurs. The funds for the new enclosure were generated by visitors spending 50p on the family trail in the summer months.

The £1,500 raised purchased the materials to build the enclosure with the staff and volunteers undertaking the building work.

The conspiracy (that’s what a group of lemurs are called) have been in two different enclosures; however, following the sad death of Rosie (the matriarch) there was an opportunity to try to reunite the group which the keepers were keen to try.

Whilst the Animal Team were sorry to lose Rosie, she had led a full and active life at Beale Wildlife Park and is either mother or grandmother to all of the Ring-tailed Lemurs here. In 2010, she gave birth to triplets and she reared them herself. That’s quite a legacy to leave.
