A new aviary for thicket birds
A new aviary for thicket birds is now under construction in the Zoological Garden.
The aviary is built as part of the Zoological Garden masterplan, developed in light of new and modern concepts of animal welfare. The aviary is being built atop the structure of a large research cage in the eastern part of the Garden (opposite the wild boars and turtle pond). The walk-through aviary will be populated with a variety of thicket birds. As part of the renovation process the mesh netting has been repaired, new soil introduced, characteristic plants planted, a water pool dug, and a pathway built.
