Bristol Zoological Gardens, Clifton, Bristol
Bristol Zoo’s gorilla family is growing so their den space has been doubled. This has been converted from the 1872 giraffe house, and is equipped with timber climbing frames, an adaptable network of ropes and a splash pool.
Visitors are allowed to walk through the space in a new steel and glass hide, over which the gorillas can walk, making them predominant. A new extension for the keepers overlooks the gorilla island.
