Keeper’s-eye view of a Grand New View

If you were to take a glance over the construction fence that runs parallel to the African Plains section of the Zoo, you wouldn’t be able to miss seeing the progress on our new elephant habitat, and we find ourselves checking on progress multiple times a day. The future indoor area is visible and stands approximately nine stories tall.

The habitat is a massive affair. There are groves of beautiful trees for shade, and there will be pools and waterfalls for keeping cool, along with shade structures replete with misting hardware. We’re all excited for Grand New View and look forward to sharing more about it.
