Chehaw announces new monkey
Chehaw Wild Animal Park on Tuesday announced the birth of the latest addition to the Black and White Colobus Monkey family. The baby was found during a morning routine check on July 5.
The mother and baby were taken off the exhibit to ensure the baby was doing well, and has since been reunited with its family on the exhibit. This is the third successful birth of this species at the park, which was recommended by the Association of Zoo and Aquariums’ Black and White Colobus Species Survival Plan, which pairs animals for breeding with the goal of maintaining a genetically healthy captive population.
