Columbus Zoo News Update - December 13, 2011

Zoo Chat forum member Team Tapir gave us an update today about a few of the ongoing projects at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. You may have noticed some working taking place in the pheasant aviaries over in Asia Quest. The zoo has installed two large viewings windows along the front side of the aviary for those who want to view the beautiful birds but don’t want to walk through aviary. They have also installed a huge mesh roof over the zoo’s master escape artist’s yard, the markhors, also located within Asia Quest. Another juicy tidbit, according to some unknown sources preliminary work on the massive African Savannah expansion has begun. However, no details on the finalized project plans are available at this time. Hopefully, we’ll know more about these plans when they become public, rumored to be revealed this spring. It’s a great time to be a fan of the Columbus Zoo!
