The Green Planet welcomes twin Tamarin monkeys

Sep 06 2017

The Green Planet, the region’s first stand-alone educational and recreational bio-dome located in City Walk has introduced two mischievous Tamarin monkey brothers to their family of wildlife. Welcomed as part of the biome’s first anniversary celebrations, the monkeys will serve as ambassadors for their species, inspiring guests to learn more about the devastating issues facing our planet’s rainforests.

The twin brothers who are yet to be named will call an expertly designed three storeyed space their new home from September 1, where they will be able to live as they would in the wild and evolve in the company of the diverse residents of the indoor tropical rainforest. Commenting on the brand-new additions, Jean Marc Bled, General Manager of Leisure and Entertainment at Meraas said, “The Green Planet family is beyond excited to welcome two young and extremely cognitive monkeys and we can’t wait to see them settling into their new environment. Guests will be able to see these Tamarin brothers in action as they play and learn the ropes with their trainers in husbandry training sessions and quite frankly, just monkeying around! They’re a bundle of energy and we’re looking forward to having our guests meet them.”

He added, “We have a whole team of experienced biologists who will be responsible for providing the monkeys with exceptional care and who will also be closely monitoring them to make sure they are adjusting to their new home. Our staff will also be keeping intricate records to make sure we are providing the absolute best care possible for these unique animals.”
