Lemur reunited with daughter

Ren, the lemur.

A LEMUR has been re-united with his daughter thanks to the Isle of Wight Owl and Monkey Haven.

The haven’s latest arrival, Ren, an endangered black and white ruffed lemur, is the father of one of the haven’s other lemurs, Crochet.

For the past ten years, Ren has been part of a breeding programme but he has now retired and will live with Crochet at the Stapler’s haven.

Crochet had been on her own for three months, following the death of her mother, Tornado.

The new arrival can be seen over the winter, when the haven is open from Friday to Monday.

They are among the most endangered animals on Earth, so cute helpless and harmless. Our world is too full of greedy people for such nice creatures, yet with some care and consideration it could be so different.
In our country we let our remaining (11.5% of IOW for instance) forests grow back after felling, most "developing" countries do not let the forest grow back, they plough it up and farm it instead.....Nice creatures like this need forest not furrows.
