Gorilla exhibit construction


Our exhibit crew is putting the finishing touches on the new upright trees recently installed in silverback Vip’s gorilla group. They are adding deadfall and hanging vines and hammocks to make the trees more accessible and usable for the gorillas. Then the horticulture team will bring in soil and finish planting the area.

We hope to have the gorillas back out and exploring these exciting new environmental enrichment items within the next few days.

If you catch any photos of the gorillas checking out the new trees, please share! You can add them to our flickr slideshow by uploading them to and tagging them with the phrase “woodlandparkzoo” or you can email them to us at
