La Palmyre Zoo has been supporting Helpsimus and the Greater Bamboo lemur project in Madagascar since 2011. Recently, the zoo had the opportunity to visit the conservation project with Helpsimus' Head Delphine Roullet.
On June 13th our female owl-face monkey (Cercopithecus hamlyni) gave birth to her third young since her transfer to the zoo in 2012. The family now gathers 5 individuals: the breeding pair (a 11 year-old male and 8 year-old female), the newborn, a female born in 2012 and a male born in 2014.
To close the video series illustrating the formation of a new group of chimpanzees at the zoo, here is a last footage showing Bamia going to the inside enclosure for the first time and the whole group being together peacefully.
