Oklahoma City Zoo’s Galapagos Tortoise Exhibit

 

The new Galapagos tortoise exhibit at the Oklahoma City Zoo is under construction!  Breedlove Land Planning is providing site design services for this new habitat located within the Children’s Zoo area.  As OKC Zoo states, “The new Galapagos tortoise habitat consists of one indoor and two outdoor spaces. The climate-controlled 900 sq. ft. indoor habitat consists of a nesting area, an indoor pool, natural substrate floors, a vestibule for animal caretakers with a sink and utility space. It also features an open-air viewing area for Zoo guests. The outdoor spaces total 8,000 sq. ft. to roam with natural boulders, a log wall and native landscaping.”  We look forward to sharing photos of the finished exhibit later this year.
