Hog Blog: Pictures of Newquay Endangered Pigs
10:01am 18th April 2013
Hogging the limelight at Newquay zoo are two of the world's rarest pigs.
The tiny creatures have just been born and are on the "critically endangered" list.
Threats to their continued survival come mainly from habitat loss and exploitation, reducing range and population viability.
John Meek, animal collection manager, says: "We are delighted by the arrival of these two little female piglets. Mother and babies are doing very well and we hope to integrate the new arrivals into the larger group very shortly."
These new arrivals are the result of Newquay Zoos' participation in international breeding programs, which aim to ensure the survival of endangered species, and the zoo works in collaboration with zoos and conservation charities worldwide to preserve and protect many threatened species.
