Perth Zoo Orang-utan Exhibit- Jungle School

Sumatran Orang-utans are critically endangered and are facing extinction in the wild within the next five to ten years. Perth Zoo is regarded as a world leader in captive breeding of the Sumatran Orang-utan with 26 Orang-utans born at the Zoo since 1970.
In 1999 iph commenced designs for the new Orang-utan exhibit, prototyped, constructed and re-assessed the designs in conjunction with the Perth Zoo’s primate team.
This project created a facility that provided a stimulating arboreal-like environment for our nearest biological relations and provided interpretation of their physiology, intelligence and habitat.
