Lemur enclosure destroyed by fire

Thu, 26 Apr 2018

The Curraghs Wildlife Park is closed today after a fire overnight destroyed one of the enclosures.

The new gentle lemurs' enclosure was completed destroyed by the blaze, which happened just after midnight.

Four lemurs were housed by the enclosure - a breeding pair and two daughters. Two have been recovered safely from their outdoor area while two are missing.

The animals are critically endangered, with only around 2,500 thought to be left in the world.

The park will reopen at 10am tomorrow.
