hAPEy Christmas from Dublin Zoo

Thursday, 15 December 2011

To celebrate the gorillas’ first Christmas in their new Gorilla Rainforest at Dublin Zoo, proudly sponsored by Freddy Fyffes, Freddy Fyffes himself has surprised the gorillas with the world’s first edible Christmas tree, made from nearly one tonne of bananas!

Freddy Fyffes presented the 3.5 meter-high edible banana tree to the gorillas and the tonne of fresh Freddy Fyffes bananas will later be used as part of the gorillas Christmas dinner.

Leo Oosterweghel, Director at Dublin Zoo said, “What a unique way to celebrate Christmas at the Zoo. The new Gorilla Rainforest has been a great success since its opening in September and the Freddy Fyffes Christmas tree is a great seasonal addition to Dublin Zoo’s newest attraction”
