Project Description

During the project to build artificial rocks at the Tallinn Zoo, we made impressive pieces that give the exhibition a unique character and authenticity. Here are the main elements created as part of this project:

  • Cliffs of artificial rock: Artificial rock cliffs are the centerpiece of the exhibition. Recreated in detail, these artificial rocks resemble the natural rock formations of Southeast Asia’s tropical rainforest. They serve as a habitat for many rare animal species, providing them with conditions similar to their natural habitats.
  • Angkor Wat Temple Ruins: The ruins of the famous Angkor Wat temple were reconstructed as part of the project, which adds historical and cultural context to the exhibition. This replica of a temple serves as both a tourist attraction and a habitat for some animal species.
  • Two waterfalls: Two impressive artificial waterfalls have been built in the exhibition area. These elements not only give an attractive look to the surroundings, but also create a natural habitat for various animals that are associated with the aquatic ecosystems of Southeast Asia.
  • Artificial grotto as main entrance: The artificial grotto, which serves as the main entrance to the exhibition, has been created with attention to detail to make visitors feel as if they are moving into the heart of a tropical rainforest. This place welcomes visitors and puts them in the right mood, preparing them for a fascinating journey.
  • Artificial Rocks at the Outdoor Otter Enclosure: Artificial rocks have been built at the outdoor otter enclosure, providing an ideal environment for these aquatic mammals. These rocks provide them with a place to play, shelter and relax.

With the completion of the project, the Tallinn Zoo has become a place where visitors can immerse themselves in the magical world of Southeast Asia’s tropical rainforest. This innovative exhibition not only attracts visitors, but also helps educate and emphasize the need to protect these valuable ecosystems.
