The gift that keeps on gibbon: newborn welcomed at Curragh's

Silvery gibbon baby latest addition to wildlife park

A baby gibbon is the latest addition to the Curragh's Wildlife Park.

It brings the species' family on the Island from three to four.

The two-day-old has yet to be named as it's not possible to see if it's a boy or girl.

Silvery gibbons are part of the ape family and originate from the island of Java, and with 2,000 breeding adults left in the wild the primate is classified as an endangered.
