Twycross Zoo - New chimpanzee habitat
A state-of the-art chimpanzee enclosure will open in Spring 2018 at Twycross Zoo in the Midlands. The £3.5million facility will for the first time see their 18 chimpanzees living together in a single-family group in a large immersive habitat, designed to encourage more natural behaviours.
This development is the latest phase of Twycross Zoo’s 20 year £55 million Masterplan.
The new three-storey building is purpose-built to suit chimpanzee husbandry needs, and will feature both indoor and outdoor areas. Visitors will be taken on a journey through an immersive jungle-like habitat, allowing them to enjoy a more engaging way of watching and learning about chimpanzees.
Twycross Zoo is open to the public from 10.00 to 17.00. For more information and to book tickets visit www.twycrosszoo.org or call 0844 474 1777.
