Tropical House at Marwell Zoo

Reportedly its ‘biggest ever exhibit’, Marwell Zoo’s Tropical House is set to open next spring and a new video reveals what the area is expected to look like. 

The new £7.8 million Tropical House at the Hampshire-located zoo will span two levels and offer visitors vantage points across a ‘lush, tropical canopy’, proving an opportunity to experience the life of the forest floor.

Groups visiting will be free to share the habitat and enjoy ‘uninterrupted, close-up views of new colourful and charismatic mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and insects.’

This video reveals what the exhibit will look like once it’s finished:


Included in the exhibit will be a Discovery Zone where groups will be able to learn how energy and power needed for modern lifestyles is generated and explore alternative renewable forms which can help animals and the environment.

The exhibit is reportedly being constructed using the latest technology and by using animal waste to fuel the heating systems, the zoo will be brought a step closer to its goal of becoming carbon neutral by the year 2020.

What else is new?

The zoo also recently opened a new Lemur Walkthrough, which allows visitors to walk side by side with the Madagascan animals, both indoors and outdoors, whilst learning about the different species.
