Hearts across the Rockhampton Region melted last week as Rockhampton Zoo announced the arrival of a happy and healthy baby chimpanzee. Now the little one is ready to meet the public and we need your help to give him a name!
The baby boy, born on Monday 3 February to mum Holly and dad Alon, is Capri’s half-brother. We will take all of the suggestions and then a panel, which will include our primate keeper, will create a shortlist. We will then hold an event at the zoo and let Alon and Holly make the final choice, much like we did with Capri.
Thanks to everyone who submitted their name ideas for the newest member of our troop - submissions are now closed, and the entries will be shortlisted.
Stay tuned for details of a community event we'll be holding soon, where Alon and Holly will make the final choice for their new bub's name!
