The extension to the existing giraffe house at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo, has provided more animal space and a much improved visitor experience within the heart of the zoo. It was designed as a separate space giving the giraffes a better environment to live in with a sand floor, good natural lighting, improved insulation, better heating, and feeders and water points at the correct level as well as providing enhanced visitor engagement.
