zoOceanarium Group named consultant for China's mammoth-scale Taihu Longemont Animal Paradise

Leading zoo and aquarium consultancy, The zoOceanarium Group, is providing consultancy services to the Taihu Longemont Animal Paradise in Huzhou, China.

Believed to be the biggest project of its kind in the world, the attraction encompasses three animal theme park attractions and occupies over 7 square kilometres.

zoOceanarium’s role relates to the design and review of the three parks: a 12-km Drive-through Safari, a Zoological Park and a Marine Life Park.

Once complete, the mammoth-scale facility is planning to exhibit 11,500 animals, representing 425 species.

The project aims to deepen the visitor experience with wildlife exhibits and interactive experiences. It will also be a centre for scientific research and conservation education.

Taihu Longemont Animal Paradise is part of a vast, $2.9 billion leisure complex situated to the south of Taihu Lake.

Aside from the animal attractions, the development will incorporate a theme park, an ancient Chinese town and an international circus. Further amenities include hotels, theatres, a convention centre, a bonsai garden and a wetland.

Back in March, zoOceanarium announced its decision to become a corporate sponsor of zoological organisation, Species360. The non-profit maintains a database of all the animals and species in the care of its 1,054 members around the world.

With offices in Dubai, Singapore and the US, the zoOceanarium Group operates and develops leading zoos, aquariums, safaris and nature-based science centres across the globe. The company’s wide range of services includes everything from initial concept design through to managing daily operations.

Recent projects include the Shark Week Exhibit at the Dubai Aquarium, and The Green Planet for Dubai’s Meraas Group.
