The unaccounted for residents were apparently mostly free flying birds, so I suppose some may have just flown out through the smoke via the areas of roof that burned away. Guess the end of some will remain a mystery .

It must have been a scary situation and as Dilly says, well done to all who assisted . According to one eye witness, the orang-utans were chased out each carrying their blankets with them . Now that does bring a tear

Come on everybody theres an appeal out for 50k ,not an enormous amount so if you can donate just a couple of quid please do so. The zoos open today ,they cant afford to stay closed so maybe they will get more visitors. Im hopeful that all species accounted for but very doubtful.

The call for money probably just a fortuitous timely bonus fundraiser -- they have insurance for such eventualities surely??
