PAt, does the average visitor want all this- they just want animals when they go to the zoo, it's nice for them t see orangs in a sanctuary, and elephants on the edge of a forest, but how mnay visirs go, um where the forest. The visior sees fences, and a bit of scenary behind and go well theres the edge. And how possible is it to create a rainforest in the zoo, just to create and edge of forest feel. I think the desugners did well with the orginality of TOE, unlike taronga, the site fr TOE has a abckdrop of larger trees beyond the fence, and surrouding apthways, and leading into each exhibit. i actually think the designes did well to incorporate the site. they could ahev bulldozed the lot of it and planted all topical plants.
