Firstly, the title's a bit misleading – please don't try hold them up, they tend to object quite strongly and touching is very much against our rules!! For all you insomniacs out there, you've been told to count sheep – we have the more exotic version in our Lemur Count and Feed.
We'll want you here bright and alert with your wits about you as counting our zippy little primates can be quite the challenge. We'll begin by collecting the lemur food from our animal kitchen and finding out from our friendly experienced knowledgeable keepers what they like to eat (the lemurs, not the keepers), what they don'tlike and what they might like but can't have so much of and make our way to the World Wide Safari, home to our packs/pride/groups of ring tailed lemurs.
Now you'll start to build empathy with our lemur keepers as we account for each and every one of our 40+ group of 4 types of lemurs, watch as the keepers identify them by name and it's highly likely you'll need to help us find the ones that are feeling a bit shy – we find grapes a particularly good currency for Lemur bribery! You'll hand feed and help clean out the lemur houses, refresh their beds and make sure they have a good supply of food and fresh drinking water for the day ahead.
Your experience includes entry to the park so you are able to enjoy the full day with us.
