The new Chimpanzee Eden has been designed to provide a larger, more complex space for Twycross Zoo’s chimps to interact in together.
The Zoo’s dedicated expert team has spent several years ‘re-wilding’ the chimps into larger social groups. The new habitat allows all of the chimpanzees to live together under one roof.
Twycross Zoo worked with the University of Birmingham to design a bespoke home that best mimics the Chimpanzees’ natural environment.
The visitor corridor of the habitat was designed with lush greenery to create a jungle-like feel, while providing the visitors with excellent vantage points to see the chimpanzees.
Visitors can watch the chimps move between their indoor and outdoor areas via the overhead tunnels which connect the two spaces as well as using sneak-peak holes to get up closer than ever before.
The external habitat houses a large climbing frame dressed in webbing and swings. The new seven-metre high indoor habitat allows the chimps to climb high and move on dynamic structures that behave flexibly, similar to the branches and vines in forest canopies in their natural environment.
