Project: Budongo Trail
Edinburgh Zoo, Edinburgh
Client: Edinburgh Zoo, Edinburgh
Size: 750 sq m

This exhibit, designed by MET Studio (working closely alongside Edinburgh architects Cooper Cromer), combines an exciting visitor experience with wildlife conservation, science, education and research. It tells the story of the Budongo Forest in Uganda and the Budongo chimpanzee conservation project, both funded by the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland.

Designed to accommodate a community of up to 40 chimps, the attraction, which includes a large outdoor area, is also home to a series of exciting interactive exhibits that demonstrate entertainingly the cultural and behavioural similarities between human beings and chimpanzees.
