This summer, the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) unveiled Madagascar! at the Bronx Zoo, a spectacular immersion exhibit inside the restored historic Lion House. Madagascar! offers guests a breathtaking view of the world’s fourth largest island off Africa’s eastern coast and home to an amazing array of unique animals and plants.
The exhibit features a wealth of wildlife diversity found in this island nation, including a 13.5-foot, 800-pound Nile crocodile lurking in a limestone cave; acrobatic ring-tailed lemurs leaping in a spiny forest; and more than 100,000 Madagascar hissing cockroaches crawling in a massive baobab tree. More than 150 other animals, representing nearly 30 species, will be featured in the 20,000-square-foot building.
The Wildlife Conservation Society has worked to save Madagascar’s biodiversity since the early 1990s. Through its projects and partnerships, WCS protects and manages wild places in Madagascar, including the country’s largest remaining tract of rainforest, a quarter of its coastal forests, and its vast coral reefs – the third largest reef system in the world.
