Zamba and Jambo have a new friend!
Zuberi arrived at Manor House Wildlife Park after crossing the Irish Ocean from Dublin Zoo on a cold March night. He's a friendly, confident lad who seems to be excited to meet his new older friends (Zuberi is 2 years old, whereas Zamba and Jamba are a year older - you'll be amazed at the difference a year makes to their size!) He'll spend his first few weeks adjusting to his new home in the house and yard but after the Easter holidays he will be able to hang out with Zamba and Jamba, and the zebras and ostrich in their huge paddock!
This is a great time for Double-Bubble ticket holders to pop in as much as possible and watch their progress as Zuberi adjusts to his new, state-of-the-art surroundings and make friends.
Anna is so proud to have rhinos at the Park, and when Zamba and Jamba arrived in 2012 she said “Needless to say this has been the most incredible and at times frustrating journey for me and my family, and the wonderful team we have here at Manor House… for four and half years we have been working to bring rhinos to Pembrokeshire. And we’re incredibly proud to have been chosen to help to stop the very real danger to these magnificent animals, that are literally being wiped out by poaching.” – Anna x
Zuberi, Zamba and Jambo are the first Rhinos in Wales for 40,000 years! They will enjoy their early years playing, learning and maturing in a secure and tranquil environment. We look forward to watching the antics of these young boys as they grow to maturity.
The role of any modern zoo is to support the captive breeding programmes of endangered animals. These initiatives improve and extend the gene pool and ensure the long term viability of endangered species. The over-riding aim is to return healthy genes to the wild. You can find out more about Rhinos on the WWF website.
