The wildlife fanatic, who is well known for her work on BBCs Spring Watch is looking forward to the birthday event, I'm really looking forward to coming to meet all the Barbary macaques at Trentham especially as it's their birthday! We'll not the macaques' birthday but Trentham Monkey Forests. Ten years of education, conservation and research for the endangered Barbary macaque. There are less than 8,000 left in the wild so awareness of their plight is essential. Here's to a Really Wild birthday!.
Since opening in July 2005, Monkey Forest has gone from strength to strength, with nearly 2 million people visiting the endangered Barbary macaques. There has been 39 babies born in just the last 5 years and each birth is a fantastic addition to the endangered species. Trentham Monkey Forest hope to continue dedicating themselves to the conservation of these fascinating monkeys.
Monkey Forest is very excited to be welcoming Michaela to the Birthday celebrations. The 10th Birthday Fun Day will not only include multiple shows and appearances from Michaela Strachan, but the park will be filled with a whole range of activities including face painting and wildlife displays all included within the normal entrance price so make sure make a note in your diary and keep your eyes peeled for more information via Trentham Monkey Forests social media pages.
