Monkey mania lures the ‘Playstation generation’

After a packed first weekend, The Living Rainforest is anticipating record visitors, as it promises an educational alternative to video games, surfing the Net and television this holiday season.

Every Tuesday afternoon throughout August, visitors to The Living Rainforest will have the chance to help feed a group of endangered Goeldi’s monkeys. While watching the monkeys interact in their natural habitat, visitors will also receive an educational talk from one of The Living Rainforest’s resident experts.

The Living Rainforest’s staff will also be introducing guests to other diverse inhabitants of the rainforest ecosystem, where plants and animals interact freely. Children will have the chance to see a dwarf crocodile, poison dart frogs, giant millipedes and colourful toucans, among others, and take part in art workshops.

The Living Rainforest will be closed during September as part of the extensive Human Impact project, but as a result August will be packed with extra activities.
