A baby grizzled leaf monkey has been born at Howletts Wild Animal Park near Canterbury. Asmara is the twentieth birth to join the family. Howletts is home to the only group of the species, outside their native country, Java.
Much of their land has been threatened by the destruction of the rain forest. The head primate keeper of Howletts told us that The Aspinall Foundation which runs Howletts and Port Lympne Animal Parks launched their latest conservation project in Java late last year.
