Indianapolis Zoo Orangutan Center Opens Saturday

INDIANAPOLIS (AP): A new orangutan exhibit at the Indianapolis Zoo is scheduled to open to the public this weekend. The $26 million International Orangutan Center includes an atrium with a 50-foot ceiling and an overhead climbing trail some 80 feet above the ground for eight orangutans. The zoo spent eight years planning the exhibit, which includes an aerial gondola ride. The apes began moving into the center in late February.
