Kansas City Zoo Orangutan Forest highlights the remarkable dexterity and intelligence of orangutans. A 3,400 square foot outdoor habitat features a grove of artificial trees, poles and vines for climbing and exploring with resting areas high above the planted forest floor. A 40’ viewing window gives visitors a canopy level perspective of the orangutans as they explore their environment. The exhibit features an orangutan feeding interactive that fosters a genuine connection between visitors and orangutans. Interpretive panels throughout the exhibit educate and inform, providing critical conservation messages about these wise and gentle giants.
