Realm of the Red Ape
Realm of the Red Ape from Chester Zoo - North of England Zoological Society
Fantastic new orangutan experience
The ‘Realm of the Red Ape’ exhibit takes its visitors into the natural habitat of the orang utan, the southeast Asian rainforest.
The entrance to the building is via a long wooden walkway, which takes you up to tree top level, to experience life within the rain forest canopy.
A walkway winds around the building allowing the visitors to access the different views of the orangutans’ enclosures, along with numerous exhibits of other Asian rainforest canopy species. All exhibits and the walkway surroundings are heavily planted with tropical vegetation to create the feel of a rainforest canopy, and through this immersion experience, we raise awareness about the threats to orangutans.
The many integral species add educational and conservation value as they share the same habitat as the orangutans.
