Monkey sanctuary welcomes a rare arrival

Guardian

A rare woolly monkey has been born at the Monkey World primate sanctuary in Wareham, Dorset, as part of an endangered species breeding programme, it was announced yesterday. The monkey, weighing 400 grams, was born on Sunday. It was unable to suckle from its mother and is being hand-reared by Dr Alison Cronin, director of the sanctuary. "We have had five woolly monkeys born at Monkey World since 1997," said Cronin. "This is a great result as it is extremely difficult to breed them in captivity." The monkey is the half-brother of Julio, which Cronin also hand-reared. Press Association
