The lake itself, already an important stormwater/sediment catchment area, has been fitted out with a state-of-the-art filtration system that includes native reed beds. This ensures water leaving the Zoo is of a far superior quality than when it first comes into the Zoo, and the ecological health of the lake is maintained.
We’re excited to share that our stunning newly completed boardwalk that snakes across the Zoo’s lake and links up all our South East Asia habitats, is now open to visitors - bringing us another step closer to completing our South East Asia Jungle Track!
From the Track’s high canopy orangutan and siamang shared shelter, you and your whanau can now walk across the lake, experience being under the orangutan and siamang aerial pathways (where these primates may be swinging above you!) and take in the lush new plantings and wetlands.
