The conspiracy of lemurs at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo have enjoyed some Easter themed enrichment items as the zoo launch their Easter event for 2022.


Keepers at the UK's largest zoo hid a range of colorful papier mache eggs for the eight strong troop of ring-tailed lemurs. The eggs contained their favorite treats such as peas, sweetcorn and beans.


Guests visiting the zoo from this weekend will be able to participate in an Easter egg hunt. This coincides with the reopening of the zoo's lemur walk-through habitat.

Team Leader, Hayley Jakeman said: “With families coming to hunt for Easter eggs all over our massive, 600-acres here at Whipsnade Zoo, we thought our inquisitive, playful lemurs should get a chance to join in the fun. 


“We made the Easter eggs as colourful as we could, and hid eggs of various sizes, because we know how much this group of lemurs love discovering and investigating new things.

“Hopefully families doing the Easter Egg Trail at Whipsnade Zoo over the Easter school holidays get as much joy out of it as our ring-tailed lemurs did!  


“It’s so great that as well as hunting for eggs and taking part in all the activities, visitors will also be able to come into our “In with the Lemurs” walk-through exhibit again. It will be open every afternoon, so the lemurs will be delighted that there will be new people to examine and jump around!” 


Along with the Easter egg hunt guests visiting Whipsnade this Easter will be able to see large grazing animals which Whipsnade are known for such as elephants and an African lion pride on holiday at the zoo while their habitat in Suffolk is repaired.
