When designing zoo exhibits, Taronga aims to reproduce each animals natural environment. In this workshop, students will learn about how the behavioural and physiological needs of an animal are the primary consideration in designing their exhibit. They will examine how animal welfare, enrichment, keeper safety, visitor engagement and sustainability also significantly inform the design process and discover the range of styles that characterise modern exhibit design.
