Dudley zoo improves its Orangutan enclosure 2011

After my visit to Dudley Zoo in 2009 and my follow up with the Zoo to find out why the Orangutan enclosure was so poor, I am pleased to say that the Zoo has now had funding and is making some great changes.  I received this information from them…

The photos show the finished extension of the indoor house and the outside viewing area. This phase was completed in May 2010. The Orangutans have settled in well and the indoor viewing has been received really well by visitors.

We are now in the process of drawing up plans for phase 3 to extend the outdoor enclosure.

We have had a good start to this year and are hoping the nice weather continues for the rest of the season. We will see some new animals arriving this year including; camels, black howler monkeys, critically endangered yellow breasted cappuchin monkeys and gelada baboons.

Thank you for your continued interest and support of Dudley Zoological Gardens.
