I know there’s been a few of these before but not for some years now it seems, and since London Zoo has been pretty quiet news-wise lately and since it’s a subject I’ve devoted quite a few idle thoughts to I thought I’d come out and ask: What developments would you like to see in the zoos future? How would you like the see the challenges posed by the Mappins and Casson resolved? To your mind could the Burton giraffe house be used for anything other then giraffes? Personally I’d like to see a decent set of dens built adjoining the Mappins to allow for a larger, more successful bear exhibit, preferably for Andean bears. Perhaps with some renovation a new aviary mirroring the Snowdon could be constructed around the mountain peaks to hold condors? Failing that I’ve seen some excellent “concept art” from an architectural firm that proposed an Amur leopard enclosure there.
