New images have been shared of a critically endangered Western chimpanzee who is celebrating her fourth birthday at Edinburgh Zoo.

The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS) shared the adorable images of Masindi, one of 15 chimps who live in the zoo's award-winning Budongo Trail, one of the world’s most interactive and innovative chimpanzee enclosures.

Keepers at the wildlife conservation charity helped the youngest member of the troop mark the milestone with presents filled with Masindi’s favourite treats.

Born on February 3, 2020, Masindi shares her name with the nearest town to the Budongo Conservation Field Station (BCFS) in Uganda, where RZSS has funded vital efforts to protect chimpanzees in the Budongo forest since 2005.

Meanwhile, a monkey which spent five days roaming the Highlands after escaping from a wildlife park is “doing really well” after being captured, keepers have said.

Honshu the Japanese macaque does not appear to have lost any weight and seems to have eaten “quite a lot of peanuts” during his time in the wild, RZSS said.

A search was launched on Sunday after the monkey found a way out of his enclosure at Highland Wildlife Park near Kingussie.

He was caught by keepers on Thursday after a member of the public spotted him snacking at a bird feeder in a garden in the local area.
