Calling DZG…

Can I speak to Mr G.Raf, Anne Teeter or Mrs C Lyon?

Yes, we’ve heard them all…and we’re expecting to hear more today as it’s April Fools’ Day.

DZG Media and Communications Officer, Rachel Hickman, said: “On April 1 our staff take many a call for an unavailable fictional character and one year alone we tallied more than 300 messages from pranksters.

“If you’re taken in this year by an animal themed April Fools’ Day joke, why not consider donating to our £800,000 orangutan enclosure appeal, to build a separate outdoor area for our four critically endangered Bornean orangutans.

Donations can be sent via our Justgiving page, by texting DZ0037 and the desired amount to 70070.”
