No more sheets, thanks!

Bornean orang utan, Sprout, wants to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has donated sheets and towels – but we don’t need anymore!


After her plea for playthings was published and picked up by local newspapers and radio stations, we’ve been inundated with bags of linen and towels for keepers to use as enrichment for our four orangs – Sprout, Jazz, Jorong and Benji. 

Upper Primates Section Leader, Pat Stevens, said: “We want to say thank you to everyone who donated their unwanted sheets, towels and bed linen to DZG over the last fortnight.

“We’ve now got enough to last quite a few months so for now, we don’t need anymore, but thanks for thinking of us!”

Thanks to Karen Edwards, who snapped Sprout and mum, Jazz, playing with a few of the donations!
