These new developments include the Conservation Precinct showcasing veterinary, research and breeding innovations and the multi-level Treehouse as a play area in nature.
Other upgrades include an overhead ‘raceway’ where Lemurs and Gibbons can exercise and explore, as well as reimagined spaces to replace the Zoo’s existing Orangutan, Tiger and primate exhibits. The Zoo will continue to be home to a wide range of Western Australian animals as well as endangered exotic species, primarily drawn from the Indian Ocean rim and South-East Asia.
The Master Plan will reinforce Western Australia’s reputation for breathtaking landscapes and natural environments, says Hassell Principal Anthony Brookfield.
“Our team wanted to create a flexible 20-year framework for Perth Zoo to facilitate a vibrant, sustainable, and experience-focused place for both animals and humans alike,” Anthony said.
