Elephant enclosure at Dresden Zoo

The elephant enclosure shall be better integrated into the park-like appearance of the Dresden Zoo by new plantings in the visitor areas.

With the help of specially chosen plants, which are oriented towards the savannah vegetation, the habitat of the elephants is to be taught. Robinias and honey locusts with umbrella-shaped crowns and several stems form a light savannah forest that visitors can stalk through and observe the animals. Dense shrub plantings intensify this spatial impression.
