1. Lori’s eyesight. It appears to be improving. We suspect her loss of sight was associated with her head injury rather than her eyes themselves. Fingers crossed for further recovery.
2. Amari & Lori sharing enclosures or being housed next door to each other. This is not currently possible. Given Lori’s current condition she is not strong enough to be in a larger enclosure like Amari or the same style of enclosures next to her. Perhaps in the future, only time will tell.
3. Lori sharing an enclosure with other juvenile Macaques. This is also not currently possible given her condition. We do not want to risk any possible further injury or any undue psychological stress. Again, perhaps in the future, this may be possible. We will continue to assess as she progresses.
4. Visiting Amari & Lori. For the foreseeable future, both girls will remain in our nursery section which is not accessible to the public. This is to ensure they are receiving round the clock care from our dedicated nursery keeping staff. We will keep you posted if or when this changes.
Day to day they both continue to improve, grow stronger, and we are very happy with their progress thus far. Both girls are very sweet and you can see their relationship with the keepers evolving as they build trust and become familiar with them.
