Posted March 7, 2019 in Enclosures & Development
Following the move of our patas & colobus monkeys to their new home in September 2018 at our recently developed ‘Out of Africa’ enclosure, we are excited to announce that, as of Monday 11th March, we will be starting work on the extension of our pygmy hippo’s indoor area at Kingdom of the Wild. This development will involve a much larger area for the hippos to explore, and we will also be updating some of our aquariums in the building at the same time.
The pygmy hippos will still be visible in their indoor area whilst the works take place and it is expected this will take approximately 2-3 weeks. There will be minor disruptions in the Kingdom of the Wild building during this time, including restricted access to Vulture Valley, however vultures can still be seen at the World of Wings enclosure.
We do apologise for any inconvenience caused but we thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
