The next time you feel like a trip to the zoo, you just might end up hopping on a shuttle to the South Korean island of Dochodo. Much like the live 'dinosaur zoo' in the film Jurassic Park, the Dochodo Island zoo will offer a unique visitor experience by supplanting tourists in an all-natural environment.
According to the Dochodo Island zoo's creators, JDS Architects, the island would be a, â€œregion based on sustainable development only, where natures and structures function in equilibrium, symbiotically feeding one another.â€ The proposed zoo would also be, â€œlow-impact,â€ meaning that it would use zero-carbon transport systems, renewable energy sources, rainwater collection sites, and waste conversion methods into fertilizer or biofuel.
