The enclosure of Brooklands Zoo’s cotton-top tamarin monkeys is getting a redesign.
Work begins today (Monday) on removing the existing airlock and replacing it with a new airlock to the side, and painting the enclosure’s mesh black.
“These changes will make it much easier for the public to see the tamarin monkeys,” says Technical Officer Zoo Eve Cozzi.
“The existing airlock is right in the view of the public so by taking that out the monkeys will have more room and the public will be able to see them better.”
It will take a few days to complete the work, during which time the monkeys will be off display.
“We’ll be moving the tamarins to temporary housing so the workers can have free access to the enclosure to get the work done,” says Ms Cozzi.
