Amazon River’s Edge will feature many species that are threatened or endangered in the wild. Selected exhibits will be linked to future Caldwell Zoo supported conservation projects in wildlife “hot spots” and communities in the Amazon region.

Guests will get to experience the animals in meticulously designed habitats that closely resemble native environments.

The plans by BKP Architects have been carefully developed over many months and construction is already underway.
