Revamped Vincennes Zoo Focuses on Creating Natural Habitats

A zoo by any other name will still smell like a zoo, but it doesn't have to maintain its traditional, archaic design as the Vincennes Zoo demonstrates. Originally built in the early 30s, it was meant to seem surreal and excessively futuristic.

Hoping to change that sad truth, the Vincennes Zoo is going through a major renovation, raising it to sustainable park status. It will feature 6 biozones that intend to replicate endangered habitats of the world.
