From what I have read there is a lot to look forward to, including a bunch of new species to the zoo! Most of the information I received is about the Southeast Asia Precinct. If anyone would like copies of the documents, feel free to message me. Southeast Asia This precinct will take visitors through flooded forest with views of Sumatran Orangutans in the trees above, as well as eye-level encounters with Sumatran Tigers and Asian Small-clawed Otters. Outdoors the Orangutans and Siamang Gibbons will be housed on several islands. The Sumatran Orangutans will have a day room made up of climbing and nesting structures located above the flooded forest. Existing enclosures to be demolished are the former meerkat tunnels exhibit, the tiger pit and current orangutan exhibit. The band rotunda will be relocated to make space for the precinct. A tropical Crab eating Macaque enclosure will be built, featuring an underwater viewing window. The Tiger exhibit will also have underwater viewing. The precinct will hopefully also include Rhinoceros Hornbills and Tomistomas. South East Asia will be the largest project the zoo has ever embarked on! Entry Plaza A new entry visible from Motions Rd including a pedestrian overbridge. Just inside the entry Meerkats and Porcupine will be on display, with views of giraffe in the background. The plaza will feature a gallery with regularly changing exhibits. FOTZ will have their own entrance. The Clearing This area will be made up of a new café, a walk-through Ring-tailed Lemur exhibit, Central Lawn, Cedric’s Kids Place and views of the Red Pandas. The multi-storied café will have views looking down on the Orangutan Forest. Cedric’s Kids Place will be made up of a relocated outdoor playground and a Wild Discovery House under a green roof featuring goats! Aussie Walkabout The walkabout will be the zoo’s largest free-flight habitat, set to contain birds, kangaroos and wallabies with enclosures for Tasmanian Devils and Wombats which will be able to be viewed up-close in a burrow shelter. Birds will be housed in two small aviaries next to the Walkabout path. Island Giants Galapagos Tortoises and Komodo Dragons will be exhibited here. The Komodo Dragons will have outdoor and sheltered habitats. South America This precinct will house Macaws and Conures in a free-flight aviary, American Alligators, Spider monkeys, Tamarins, Pygmy Marmosets, insects, hunting bush dogs, Capuchins, Capybara, Poison Dart Frogs and Sloths! The exhibit will contain a forest boardwalk into the jungle canopy with an arboreal shelter joined by bridges. Te Wao Nui A section of bush at the back of this area will contain free-range kiwi and a bush boardwalk that will lead to platforms for overnight camping. Pridelands Located next to The Watering Hole, the flamingo aviary will be one of only a few zoo exhibits worldwide that allows visitors to see the species in flight. The hippopotamus exhibit will be redeveloped as a shared habitat with Baboons with an underwater hippo viewing area. The existing enclosures for Lions, Rhino, and Cheetah will be upgraded and re-themed, with the land in the Lions habitat being increased up close to The Watering Hole. Nyala will be introduced to the Rhino enclosure. Breeding enclosures for breeding cheetah will be built in an off-display area of the zoo. Sri Lanka A small themed village will be built, containing information about conservation work being done in the country. The current elephant enclosure will be expanded, allowing up to 8 cows plus young. New barns will be built for cows and a bull, which will have its own habitat.
