The Welsh Mountain Zoo – National Zoo of Wales, has quietly been enjoying a baby boom during lockdown.
During the past few weeks, the Zoo has welcomed three baby ring-tailed Lemurs as well as one baby pine marten, several Humboldt penguin chicks and some Cape teal ducklings which where born over Easter weekend!
Kim Wood, Director of Living Collections of the Welsh Mountain Zoo commented: “It’s great to welcome new members to our Zoo family during these very unusual times.
“I’m pleased to say that all of our babies are doing very well. It’s still too early to sex them but they are are all healthy and strong.”
As part of the Zoo’s commitment to engaging with its audiences online whilst the gates are closed, special screenings of the new arrivals will be shown in the upcoming weeks.
Jen Jesse, Director of Operations and Administration said: “Our online behind the scenes footage has been incredibly well recieved and we’ve had some lovely feedback. Film of our new arrivals will soon be available to view as we take a look inside each of the enclosures as our babys take their very early steps.”
