Great Ape House
In the night from December 31, 2019 to January 1, 2020, a major fire completely destroyed our monkey house.
Miraculously, the two chimpanzees Bally and Limbo survived this catastrophe only slightly injured.
Unfortunately we have to cope with the painful loss of our orangutan family, consisting of Bunjo (19), Lea (26), their daughters Sungai (15), Suria (3) and their son Changi (9).
We also mourn the death of our flatland gorilla senior group, consisting of Massa (48) and Boma (46) as well as the West African chimpanzee Charly (46).
Other animals that died in the fire were three golden lion monkeys, two silver monkeys and six pygmy marmosets, two agoutis, fruit bats and free-flying birds.
