    How about the new gibbon complex at Twycross? I assume that will be completed next year, probably before the chimpanzee complex. ;)

    Maybe Chester will have orangs in Islands next year? :p

    Wildwood (Kent) are getting Arctic foxes! (I know this isn't too exciting but they are thin on the ground in the UK!)

    Can't think of any others that haven't previously been mentioned.

    Copenhagen Zoo is making a new exhibit for snow owl and arctic fox, in part of the old bear pits. It's basically already built, but it's awaiting final approval from the authorities, according to the zoo's facebook page.

    I think Colchester Zoo's 'Chimpanzee Lookout', featuring improved enclosures for the chimpanzees and slender-snouted crocodiles will probably be opening in the early part of 2016.
