    Primates should be done in Apenheul (Apeldoorn)
    However Blijdorp has also a nice amount of primates such as the new Gelada enclosure (which is still in build I believe),gorillas and such but also a nice amount of asian species

    So far in the Datum Prikker we've got 3 responses and those seem to favour July: 13, 21, 28.
    Make sure to respond. I'd like to set a date by the end of May!

    I do wonder if the choice is primates then: Amsterdam-Artis holds gorilla, chimpanzee (pure-bred elderly /hybrid others), yellow-cheeked gibbon, Diana monkey, black spider monkey, a good selection of Callichtrids (cotton-top tamarin, Goeldi's monkey, pygmy and white-eared marmoset), douroucouli, potto, black crested macaque and mandrill.

    For Rotterdam: well, can someone name all of them?

    So it seems really obvious right now but the meetup would be in July, 14 OR 21 OR 28. My preferance goes to 21, but I am not sure what the others think

    As mentioned above, my preference is for the 28, but don't work around me as I may have to cancel at the last minute. (I have hospital treatment every Mon, Wed and Fri and sometimes feel unwell after it and may have to pull out as late as lunchtime on the Friday.) :)

    Due to some unfortunate event the 28th is not possible for me. Would you all be fine with the 29th?
