Lemurs, Meller's ducks and hissing cockroaches are among the species being celebrated at an Isle of Man Wildlife Park this week.

Curragh's Wildlife Park is focusing on the animals of Madagascar in support of the European Zoo campaign to raise money for conservation in the country.

Staff will also be on hand to inform the public about the threatened wildlife of the African island.

The park houses several ruffed, ring-tailed, brown and gentle lemurs.

The event, Madagascar Matters, takes place on 23 and 24 June.
