While recently performing a construction observation visit for a soon-to-be completed Zoo Atlanta project, Breedlove Land Planning designer Kyle Webb, E.I.T, LEED AP BD+C shot a video of a Malaysian sun bear playing in its habitat. Breedlove Land Planning was part of The Epsten Group design team for both phases of the carnivore exhibit renovation project, which included this habitat. Zoo Atlanta will soon unveil the second phase and open it to the public.
The new Zoo Atlanta Carnivore Complex, phase one, is set to open this week. Breedlove Land Planning, as a consultant to The Epsten Group and in conjunction with Ursa International, designed and permitted this habitat renovation. New additions to the zoo include sun bears, sumatran tigers and wreathed hornbills. This exhibit opening marks the second the team has designed at Zoo Atlanta, the first being the Parakeet Adventure (photo below). The phase two design of the renovation of the Carnivore Complex is underway.
