Dublin Zoo launch competition for public to name adorable new arrival, endangered baby siamang gibbon

DUBLIN ZOO has launched a competition for the public to help name its newest arrival, an adorable baby gibbon.

In what has become one of Dublin Zoo's best-loved traditions, staff at the wildlife park have enlisted the help of Ireland's animal lovers to help name their newest addition to the family.

The zoo's brilliant competitions have previously helped name an adorable baby gorilla, two gorgeous endangered Siberian tiger cubs, and many more.

Now the zoo have announce the arrival of a "beautiful baby siamang gibbon", who was born back in the summer of 2020 but who is, so far, without a name.

Launching the competition, a spokesperson for Dublin Zoo took to social media where they wrote:

"Can you come up with a name for the beautiful baby siamang gibbon at Dublin Zoo?

"The male infant pictured here with mother Cahaya, was born overnight on Sunday the 2nd August 2020."

Since siamang gibbons are originally found in the mountainous regions of southern Asia, the zoo is asking people to suggest names of Asian origin for the adorable siamang gibbon.

You can send your entries via the Dublin Zoo website (here) up until 31 March.

Best of all, the winning entry will win a Family Day Pass to visit Dublin Zoo once the tourist favourite reopens.
