Monkey rescue

GMTV


Last July, GMTV took part in the biggest-ever rescue of primates from Taiwan to Dorset. Today we revisit Monkey World for the arrival of two new Taiwanese orangutan sisters... Sisters Lucky and Hsiao Quai were supposed to begin a new life in Britain with two other monkeys last year. But they never made it because it was feared they had TB, and only their sister Ro-Ro was brought over to Monkey World, an ape rescue centre in Dorset. But now the family are reunited in a specially-built 25 acre enclosure, complete with bathing pool. Living with them will also be orangutans Amy and gorgeous baby Gordon.

"They had a long, tough journey and have taken it very well," said Dr Cronin, Monkey World's Scientific Advisor.

The fourth sister, Hsiao Lan, is still not free of TB and will remain in Taiwan for the time being.
