Complex Carnivores Open to the Public at Zoo Atlanta

The Atlanta Journal and Constitution has posted a photo gallery of the newest Zoo Atlanta exhibit- the second phase of Complex Carnivores.  As Zoo Atlanta states, Complex Carivores introduces three new mammal species to Zoo Atlanta: bush dogs, binturong and fossa. The animals won’t be the only new carnivores in the Zoo; adjacent to their habitats, a carnivorous plant bog will showcase predatory plants, including Venus fly traps, pitcher plants and sundews.  Breedlove Land Planning is proud to have assisted The Espten Group and Ursa International with the design of this new exhibit.  (photo © 2011 AJC)

Zoo Atlanta Sun Bears In Action

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.

New Zoo Atlanta Exhibit to Open

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.
