    Newquay Zoo Goes Interactive to Name Baby Monkeys

    Written by: Michelle Turton

    Submitted: 11 July 2007

    When these very cute Pygmy Marmosets were born, staff at Newquay Zoo thought it would be nice to give the viewers of the many zoo videos that appear on youtube.com and on the zoo's official website the chance to help name them.

    Newquay Zoo Video Clips

    Michelle Turton Marketing Manager comments "We set up a channel on youtube.com back in February so we could start showing short video clips on everything from baby animals being hand reared to Titan the Robot turning on the lights at Christmas, and we have had a fantastic response. Over 32,000 viewings in four months. Some of the videos also appear on the zoo's official website which is great fun. As soon as we capture something on video we can have it on our website that same day."

    Names to be Chosen in August

    "When the two baby Pygmy Marmosets were born it seemed perfect to invite name suggestions from youtube.com viewers and the Newquay Zoo website viewers during July. At the end of the month we will put a list together for the keepers to look through and then announce the chosen names on the 1st August."

    Anyone wanting to see the videos can either visit the zoo website at www.newquayzoo.org.uk or click here to see the 'baby pygmy marmosets' on youtube.com.
