animal park monkey
On the 15th of August Howletts welcomed yet another baby gorilla to their animal park this year. Gorillas are known for breeding slowly however this is the fifth infant that Tamba has successfully given birth to.

Visitors to the animal park were in awe over the newest edition to the family. Between Port Lympne and Howletts they have managed to breed 131 infants at their wild animal parks.

Both parks make a fantastic day out in Kent and with the arrival of new infants to the park throughout the year visitors are sure to see something different each time they visit. Zoo keepers believe the new infant will depend on its mother to learn how to look after itself and raise its own infants one day.

Maybe adopt an animal?

There are various ways to support Howletts with their breeding programme: you can adopt an animal, make a donation or just visit their beautiful parks.
