Taronga Zoo welcomes Squirrel Monkeys

Squirrel Monkey Jungle Walk

I just missed out on the cutest exhibition the other day. I’m talking about Squirrel Monkeys closer than ever before. No two experiences will be alike as these monkeys warm to their new home and leap from the treetops.

Taronga Zoo CEO Cameron Kerr describe the new exhibit, “the new space has gigantic climbing towers, swinging ropes, flowing water and mature trees. Guest will walk along a boardwalk through the exhibit where they get a chance to see the monkeys like never before”.

The whole troop is involved during playtime, which is also encouraged by daily animal enrichment activities led by keepers. They will leave no stone unturned as they engage with all levels of their exhibit, which can also be seen from above when visitors take a ride in the Sky Safari.

Taronga Zoo Primate Keeper Renae Robinson says “these little animals are social creatures that spend their days foraging trough the trees, resting in their huddles, playing and enjoying the sunshine”.

The Squirrel Monkey Jungle Walk is open to the public just in time for the Summer School Holidays here in Sydney. Visitors save up to 20% off when purchasing tickets online.
