Golden Lion Tamarins

The Golden Lion Tamarins have settled in and are getting more confident in their new surroundings. With all but 2%-5% of their original habitat lost the Golden Lion Tamarin is classified as Endangered. In an attempt to curb their precipitous decline, several conservation programs have been undertaken. The intent is to strengthen the wild population and maintain a secure captive population in zoos worldwide.


Our second group of Meerkats are also enjoying their new home, having come to us from Perth Zoo late last year.
