For one weekend only, the Zoo is offering free entry to all red haired children* and any child who arrives at the Zoo dressed as an orang utan** to drive awareness surrounding the endangered orang utans in the wild.
*The Zoo welcomes any type of red haired child under 16 years of age for free to the Zoo this weekend.
** Orang utan fancy dress can include anything from an orang utan suit, a red haired wig or red/orange item of clothing such as jumper, trousers or coat. All you need to do is make an effort on the day!November 12, 2010 at 2:22 pm #104384

My sister and niece are red haired, my sis got teased enormously as a child (she was tormented in school with red-haired nicknames) but now, as a woman she is gorgeous and other women pay to try and get the hair like hers – so reckon she got the last laugh!
Can understand why some people might not like to be compared to an orangutan though..November 13, 2010 at 8:03 pm #104442

I have a little red haired child. It was amazing when he was born, as my other children are brown, mousey colour. It took me by suprise. 😀 The nurse said ‘oh, he’s red head’. My face dropped and she quickly said ‘ I mean a strawberry blonde’ 😆 but my face had dropped as I was genuinely shocked at his colouring as no-one else near us had this hair colour. But have to say 😀 I really love his hair colour and it suits him so much. I couldn’t imagine him being blonde or brown now. He stands out in a lovely way. People do comment on his hair in a lovely way. I know some people still tease people with red hair 🙄 and I don’t get it. I know ‘ginger’ can be a term used that is not meant in a nice way but my girlscall him our little ginger in the most affectionate way. It was embarassing though when I was in the playpark one day and his older brother said to someone ‘You have a ginger too, my brother is a ginger’ 😳 I wasn’t sure how they would take it.November 15, 2010 at 6:01 pm #104509
