Rainforest of the Americas at the L.A. Zoo
The new state-of-the-art Rainforest of the Americas exhibit immerses visitors in the theme, “everything has a home.” Tropical rainforests are full of life. From the treetops to the rivers, creatures are crawling, flying, slithering, hiding, sleeping, and eating. Detailed sculptures, educational graphics, and architectural elements create an immersive experience for visitors, while specific animal highlights include amazing critters, from piranhas and giant otters to harpy eagles and cotton-top tamarins.
Harvest Moon Studio created the audio soundscapes so they fit high canopy, riverside, and ground cover settings, editing recordings taken in the Costa Rican, and the Amazonian, rain forests.
