It’s great to be eight!

We’re sending birthday greetings to our cheeky Bornean orangutan Sprout who’s eight today!

The birthday girl received a sack full of tasty treats wrapped in colourful tissue paper for breakfast this morning, but keepers have plenty more fun and games in store for her throughout the day and there’s also going to be orang-friendly cake on the menu too,  so she’s in for a very exciting day!

If you’re visiting us make sure you swing by the enclosure to wish her many happy returns – or why not send her a birthday gift by donating to our orangutan enclosure appeal and help us reach £500,000.

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