Mission Madagascar Enclosure Opens

Our lemur exhibit has received a Mission Madagascar makeover in time for Easter!

Madagascar is home to an abundance of plants and animals found nowhere else on earth. Lemurs are just one example – and we’re proud to house three different lemur species at our zoo, including the black and white ruffed, ring tailed and the red ruffed lemur. All of which are listed as either critically endangered or endangered on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

We’ve been busy over the Winter period, as part our continued investment programme, upgrading the old lemur enclosures into a Madagascar themed oasis – allowing guests the opportunity to learn all about these colourful characters and the threats they face in the wild.

Take a walk along a winding pathway that runs between the black and white ruffed and ring tailed lemur enclosure and watch them explore their new home.  Guests will get a great view of the animals through the large windows and can enjoy the theming and signage throughout.

You don’t want to miss it!

*Our red ruffed lemurs are currently housed at the old ring-tailed lemur island, opposite our pedal tractors.
