Public Viewing/Handicap Accessibility• The zebra lives in an open habitat – Be very cautious of visitors throwing food – Be sure to make sure no one is leaning over the rails or come in any contact with the animal• There is a set of stairs that visitors have to walk up to view the zebras clearly, but there is also a ramp that the handicap can use to view
  • 6. Protection From Severe Weather• The zebras will evacuate into their stables, when a severe weather threat is arising.• Make sure all animals are accountable for and that babies are with their mothers – If a female zebra is going through her gestation period make sure she is well protected

  • 10. Public Viewing/Handicap Accessibility• A glass separates the animals from the visitors. – The reason for this is because humans carry many types of diseases and this is one of the leading factors killing these chimpanzees.• This viewing will not have any ramps, nor stairs so it will be easier for the handicap to view this species.
  • 11. Protection From Severe Weather• This habitat includes an entrance through the rocks (a cave)• The animals will evacuate into to the center of the cave whenever we are under a severe weather warning or threat.• Protecting these animals is a necessity, so please take all precautions by making sure all the animals are accounted for.
