Guests have the chance to interact with the resident gorilla troop and Bornean orangutan families at the Great Apes exhibit, featuring both indoor and outdoor areas for their comfort and wellbeing. Depending on how warm or cold the weather is, guests will find the apes in one of the yards in the summer, or in the indoor spaces in the winter.
The great apes are large, tailless primates whose physical and mental qualities closely resemble many human traits. Most ape species are omnivorous, but fruit is the preferred food among many groups. Apes are social animals and form large troops or families that are bonded together.
During the summer months, guests will get the chance to see the Great Apes in the outdoor yards that feature several climbing structures and natural fauna for enrichment. The rounded yards give guests ample perspectives to view these amazing species from multiple vantage points.
During the winter months, guests will find the Great Apes in the indoor areas that keep them warm during the cold months. Inside, guests can also discover several interactive signs detailing the Gorillas on the Line cell phone recycling initiative and the Palm Oil scan app to ensure consumables are being produced using sustainable palm oil sources.
