Orlando Science Center (Website)’s new nature-focused “Life” exhibit space is still on track for a Spring 2024 opening.
Once complete, the exhibit will promote messages of sustainability and conservation reinforced by live animal interactions and hands-on displays and is the largest exhibit construction project in the center’s history.
The Center has converted over 10,000 SF of exhibition space into three distinct animal habitats; Ocean, Rainforest, and Swamp, as interpreted through a free-flight aviary and a 360-degree aquatic habitat. Construction hit an important milestone this month with the addition of large mature trees in the rainforest section, which will soon house free-ranging birds, tortoises, and small primates called tamarins.
There will be over 300 animals living in the “Life” exhibit once complete, compared to 50 animals prior to construction.
Construction is expected to be completed in early January.
