Zoo survey: You have a chance to shape a future exhibit at Woodland Park Zoo.
The zoo has opened an online survey as part of planning for the new Forests for All Experience.
It is planned for the location of the former Day and Night Exhibits.
In the global conservation wein, the Forests for All experience will feature vulnerable animals from the world’s forests. Tree kangaroos, red pandas, birds, and reptiles and invertebrates will be included. The aim of the exhibit will be to motivate guests to act to conserve forest habitats. There will be information about forest-friendly consumer choices that people can make at home, in the office, at school, in the community, at the polls — and even during a trip to the zoo.
Healthy forests are a natural aid in fighting climate change, in addition to providing habitat for wildlife and livelihoods for people.
Work on Forests for All is expected to start in 2024, and the exhibit would open in 2026.
In addition to the survey, the zoo is conducting focus groups with diverse communities.
