Two Endangered Primate Species Coming to Animal Adventure Park
Beginning today, you'll be able to see the newest members at the park. They may not be the same size as the king of the jungle that roam there but their just as important. They are coming to Animal Adventure through The Golden Headed Lion Tamarin Cooperative Breeding Coalition (GHLT-CBD).
They were added to the endangered species list in 1982. Since then, the population has recovered because education, conservation and preservation initiatives. The reason that the Golden Headed Lion Tamarin remains on the endangered list is because they only inhabit 2-5% of their original natural habitat.

Animal Adventure Park is located at 85 Martin Hill Road in Harpursville and is open every day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. When you stop by, make sure that you say hello to Denver and Palmira.
