Monkeying around this winter

The mornings are getting brighter, the days are getting longer. There are daffodils and snowdrops everywhere you look. Spring is well on the way!

It's a sigh of relief for most people, apparently this winter was the coldest on record for about 100 years. It's not surprising then that Monkey World in Wool, Dorset, launched a campaign with local radio station Wessex.FM appealing for towels and blankets for their hairy residents!

The monkeys and primates used the extra blankets, pillowcases, duvet covers and towels to help keep warm after Monkey World's usual delivery of wood wool couldn't get through due to the weather.

Apparently the extra towels went down really well, with the primates wrapped themselves up with them, played with them and even made cosy beds to snuggle up in!

Go here to see some photos of the Wessex team dropping off the much needed towels etc at Monkey World!
