Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Sounds Good -

THERE is a new ad­di­tion at Port Lympne wild an­i­mal park. A new-born colobus mon­key joins the 28 other black and white colobus mon­keys at the park. Si­mon Jef­fery, head of the park’s pri­mate sec­tion, said: “Over the past decade we have had over 40 suc­cess­ful births of colobus mon­keys, with 23 ar­rivals in the past six years. “This many births re­flect a happy troop of mon­keys and the fact that we are on the right track with our breed­ing and con­ser­va­tion pro­grammes.”
