A few weeks back we got an exclusive tour with the zoo keepers at Dublin Zoo to see the brand new orangutan forest habitat. Orangutans Sibu, Leonie, Riona and Majurs brand new forest home is inspired by the Orangutans natural environment in the tropical rainforests of Borneo. It is five times bigger than their old habitat with eleven trees, all between seven and twelve meters high complete with inbuilt lifts. These lifts transport food to the top of the trees and once the food reaches the top the orangutans are challenged with a slow release feeder to get the food hidden inside.
The main attraction of the new orangutan forest is the rope wire connecting the two islands together. Meters above your head the orangutans literally climb across a public footpath to the other side, it’s really cool but be careful, watch out for falling debris.
Also, did you know there has been a new arrival at Dublin Zoo? A southern white rhinoceros male calf was born on Thursday 25th August, weighing approximately 60kgs and Dublin Zoo are looking for your help to name the little guy. If you have a suggestion (must be African origin) pop over to their facebook page.
So to celebrate Orangutans Sibu, Leonie, Riona and Majur settling into their new home I have a Dublin Zoo family pass to giveaway.
