W.M.D. Anderson, a former senior vice president of the American Zoo Association, said in a statement that the new zoo is designed to help preserve the animals and the park.
“This $10 million facility is the result of the collaborative work of the National Park Service and the American Zoological Association and will provide more opportunities for animals, especially the great apes, to interact and interact freely,” Anderson said.
“The zoo will also be a great place to visit for visitors from around the world who wish to visit the Great Plains, and will help preserve these habitats and wildlife in the area.”
The new zoo also will include the Great Basin Amphitheater, a major attraction in the zoo’s New Jersey facility, which will feature live animals.
“We have already completed a major expansion of the amphitheater,” Anderson continued.
“It is a unique setting for our animals and is an important component of the Zoo’s vision for the future.”
The new facility also will feature an “intimate experience” room, which includes an indoor water play area, as well as a water play pavilion.
The amphitheatre, which has a capacity of 5,500 people, is the largest indoor water park in the world and hosts more than 1,500 animals.
