Sprout’s Good Friday!

It certainly was a Good Friday for DZG’s adorable Bornean orang Sprout who turned seven today.

Upper Primates keepers delivered piles of pressies to our excited little one who immediately started unwrapping the paper to get to the goodies inside.

Section Leader Pat Stevens said: “We filled boxes with straw and added seeds, apples and carrots – which are all the things that Sprout loves – and wrapped them up for her to rip into.

“She really enjoyed getting to the treats and even shared some with her mum Jazz.”

Why not celebrate Sprout’s birthday by donating to our orangutan enclosure appeal, as we’re aiming to raise £800,000 to build a new separate outdoor area for our critically endangered great apes.

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

Swing by to say Happy Birthday to Sprout if you’re at DZG today!
