Jersey Zoo celebrates the arrival of three very rare little pigs this Easter

Posted: 28th March, 2018

Jersey Zoo are excited to announce that they have recently welcomed a new species to the Zoo – three female Visayan warty pigs. This species of pig comes from the Philippines and is Critically Endangered, with only around 200 left in the wild. They used to live on several islands in the Philippines, but today are restricted to just two - Negros and Panay. Unfortunately their habitat is rapidly decreasing due to illegal logging and hunting.

Watch this video to find out more about the arrival of the three little pigs.
