      Do they have a completion date for this?
    • Maguari
      Sometime this summer, I believe.

      What type of work are they doing in there?
    • Maguari
      Resurfacing and arranging the paddock into gentle terraces to prevent degradation and improve drainage, with a bit of general landscaping while they're at it.
    • MARK
      Thanks for that, do they have a sand paddock?
    • Pertinax
      Is there less of a slope on the elephants' side, down to the public wall/barrier now? If I remember rightly if they came down to the front before they were well below eyelevel, is it likely to be different now?
    • Maguari
      This is the only outdoor paddock (somewhere between sand and earth), but there is sand in at least part of the indoor areas if I recall.

      Not sure - I think it will be a shallower slope but not sure if it will get any less deep at the edges.

      It should be done in mid July. Before the first baby is born. :)

      On my visit latley it appeared that the slope at the front is massively shallower then what it was
    • Arizona Docent
      That is perfect, because I will be visiting in September. The only problem is I am such a cat fanatic that I might get stuck all day at the jaguar exhibit and miss the rest of the zoo ;)
    There are no comments to display.
