Wildlife world zoo in the Netherlands will open this year at the Willemstads zoo in The Hague, where it will be home to the world’s largest population of chimpanzees.
The zoo’s staff and guests will be able to interact with the chimps through interactive exhibits, including interactive play, a special “cocoon” and a “couch-and-ball” experience.
The Willemsts zoo is the only one in the world to have more than 2,000 chimps.
The museum is currently in the process of setting up its own exhibit, a “chimpanzee house” for visitors, to showcase the animals.
It will be located at the zoo’s entrance in the “Werkstatt zoo,” and will be open on weekends, when the animals are not being kept indoors, but on a daily basis, said museum director, Rolf Nieuwenhuis.
It is expected to open later this year, when its original date of opening has been set.
