25 Zoo Innovations

From Vertical Farms for Zoos to Amazing Zoo Ads

— August 30, 2009 — Lifestyle
Zoos are the closest most people will ever get to exotic wildlife, and these zoo innovations showcase all of the creativity that surrounds these animal preserves. Whether it's through insightful ad campaigns or shocking guerrilla street art, zoos always seem to know how to keep the public interested. Check out these and more zoo innovations below.

Implications - You won't be able to touch the animals, but the zoo is still a good way to get close to wildlife. But instead of just simply housing animals, these places have found ways to make things more interesting for visitors. Whether it's creative ads or the addition of an exotic animal, you'll see why the zoo has been successful in keeping the public interested time and time again.
