Our trio of diana monkeys at the zoo can be discovered in Monkey Heights.
Diana monkeys belong to the Old World monkey family and are found in primary forests in West Africa from the Ivory Coast to Sierra Leone.
They mainly eat leaves, fruits and buds, though sometimes will also consume small insects.
Extensive deforestation due to logging and charcoal production, continues to reduce the habitat of these monkeys. They are now classed as an Endangered species by the IUCN Red List.
The Diana monkeys at Paignton are part of the EAZA ex-situ breeding programme (EEP) for the species.
