Huge Biodome to Simulate Tropical Rainforest in British Zoo


The Chester Zoo is soon to feature a biodome that will simulate the tropical rainforest climate of the African Congo. The biodome, called Heart of Africa, will expand over an area of 172,000 sq ft.

It will become the home for a large number of animals, including gorillas, chimpanzees, okapi (giraffe-like creatures), birds, amphibians, reptiles, fish, and invertebrates.

The visitors will be able to observe not only the rich fauna of the Heart of Africa but also enjoy the wonderful jungle canopy that will flourish over their heads, informs Architect.

It is worth mentioning that Heart of Africa is expected to open in 2014 and its authors hope that the biodome will become the largest conservation and animal attraction in Europe.
