    Discarded Christmas Trees were given a new lease of life yesterday - as enrichment toys for the lemurs at the award-winning Yorkshire Wildlife Park.
     
    Rangers delivered the trees to the one-acre Lemur Woods reserve for the enjoyment of the endangered ring tailed and red bellied lemurs.
     
    Greg Clifton, team leader of primates team at the park said: "Like us all after the Christmas season the lemurs really enjoyed getting out and about and playing around in the trees. It is wonderful to see the trees being used to enrich their lives now they are no longer needed. We have more than enough to go around and don't need any extra. 
     
    "They were a big hit in the woods. Lemurs are so mischievous anyway, so they were transfixed with the trees, which had been taken down elsewhere in the park. Visitors really enjoyed watching their antics."
     
    YWP is the UK's fastest growing animal attraction - offering visitors all year round the chance to come face to face with some of the world's most beautiful and rare species, including the country's only Polar Bears, Amur Tiger and Leopards, Meerkats and many more.
