Visitors Can Help Name Niabi's Newest Monkey
Visitors can now help choose a name for Niabi Zoo's newest Colobus monkey. The baby was born a month ago, and people can use their pocket change to cast a vote for three different names.
Director of the zoo in Coal Valley, Marc Heinzman, says the name with the highest dollar amount will win. And all proceeds will go towards "ongoing improvements" to exhibits and facilities.
Three names are up for voting: Adina, which means “she has saved," Raziya, which means “sweet or agreeable,” and Makeda which means “magnificent.” The ballot boxes are located in front of the African Treetops Colobus monkey habitat at Niabi Zoo.
