The new home of the latest additions to the Curraghs Wildlife Park is officially open.

The Lieutenant Governor was the guest of honour at the opening ceremony of the enclosure for silvery gibbons Slamet and Nakula, who arrived at the park in July as part of a breeding programme.

The facility has taken two years of work and includes a rope bridge, heated house and island.

The park's general manager, Kathleen Graham, told MTTV she's hoping there could be another new arrival in the near future: [play audio].
