    Yes, you can do more than one challenge - you can do as many as you want - but preferably only one at a time.

    Challenge number 9 is:
    Your challenge is to design a large walk-through aviary with at least 10 bird species. You have complete free choice in terms of concept, theming and bird species as long as the species are all housed together, at least most of the time. As the aviary is located in a zoo in a temperate climate region partially visible indoor housing should be included.

    This topic hasn't been active for months, but I guess I should probably still honor this request.

    Challenge number 2 is:
    Your challenge is to design a complex or exhibit to house a group of Red kangaroos (Macropus rufus), Emus (Dromaius novahollandiae) and at least 2 other macropods of your choice.

    We see a large, grassy paddock featuring a sort of tropical dry forest theme. If you listen closely, you can hear something. The tap-tapping of the red kangaroo! The zoo has 2.2 of these specimens, and their exhibit is top-notch, outfitted with a river, a pool to drink from, toys all over the place, and probably some more. There are also some emus in the exhibit, which can be seen scavenging the exhibit for grass just in sight of the kangaroos.

    As we continue down the way, we see a forested, wet exhibit. There is a large moat in front of the exhibit, and swamp plants such as lily pads and cattails can be seen everywhere. The trees in the exhibit include massive willows, cypress trees on the water's edge, and mangroves in the moat.

    So as we go into the out area, we see a large glass house thing, similar to the London Zoo's aviary. It is a climate controlled habitat for a massive blimmin' colony of quokkas.
