ST. LOUIS (WSIL) -- Beginning at 10 a.m. on Monday, July 12, you can swing into the treetops at the opening of St. Louis Zoo's Primate Canopy Trails!
This special space is a 35,000-square-foot outdoor expansion connected to the Primate House.
The $13 million exhibit consists of eight new outdoor homes for primates — lemurs, Old World monkeys and New World monkeys.
The first-of-its-kind primate habitat and guest experience includes climbing structures that allow guests to explore the forest canopy next to the animals, while learning through play and exploration about conservation challenges primates are facing in the wild — and discovering solutions to help.
Approximately 40 primates representing 14 species will utilize Primate Canopy Trails and the Primate House. The increased number, size and complexity of habitats allows the Zoo to increase its participation in cooperative conservation breeding programs, as the Zoo will be able to accommodate larger groups as the resident primate families grow
