GAZETTE photographer David Baylis captured these “little monkeys” at play in a new nature park.
The “‘orang-utan habitat” is at the rear of the kindergarten in Parkerville Primary School.
Choosing a theme for the play area was easy because each year the school raises funds to sponsor the great apes through The Orang-utan Project.
Kindergarten teacher Caroline Whitelock said many local people contributed to the project, designed and built to encourage young children to take risks in a controlled environment.
The nature park opened with a community event and a special visit from Parkerville Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade on Thursday last week.
