Construction Progress on RWPZ Rainforest Building

Updated: Jun 20, 2018

June 2018

The Roger Williams Park Zoo South American Rain Forest Building is currently deep into construction and the building is really coming together!

Coming to Life

Since our last site visit, all of the plant life has arrived and it is really beginning to feel like a rain forest, as long as you ignore all the construction noises. Also, the mural is nearly finished adding to the effect and are helping make the exhibits come to life.

Here is a photo of the progress on the mural behind the mixed species exhibit.

A New Home

This building will be home to otters, monkeys, and several species of birds, fish, and reptiles. Each exhibit has their own qualities that are unique to each animal and will be a wonderful backdrop to these amazing creatures for adults and children to experience.

Here is a picture of the construction of the monkey exhibit's climbing tree, and below are more photos of the progress around the site!
