Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for New Golden Tamarin Lion Exhibit at the Cape May County Zoo

CAPE MAY - There will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Golden Lion Tamarin exhibit at the Cape May County Zoo on Sunday, October 4th at 12:00 p.m.
The new exhibit will be dedicated in memory of Kathleen Plousis, late wife of former U.S. Marshal James Plousis, who had a love of all animals. It is larger and taller than the previous habitat. There is an increase from 12ft to 16ft tall. The new screening is almost invisible, allowing for easier viewing by the public. The enclosure is not only bigger, but stronger, and will have all new furnishings inside.
The Golden Tamarin Lion from Southeastern Brazil is severely endangered because its habitat has been fragmented into small, unconnected areas. About 1,500 Golden Lion Tamarins live in the wild.
