The Chattanooga Zoo is moving forward with its African Expansion, a significant part of the Zoo’s Master Plan. The $3.9 million project will bring unique African animals to Chattanooga, helping to conserve various species.

With assistance from resident porcupines Tommy and Pookie Prickles, the Zoo recently broke ground on a brand new Cape of Africa exhibit. The habitat is for lesser-known African animals like Cape porcupines, servals, and warthogs. When it’s completed, visitors will be able to experience animal interactions, educational opportunities, and majestic views of the Zoo’s giraffes.

You don’t need a hard hat to help build the Cape of Africa exhibit. With the “That’s My Brick!” campaign, you can support the construction of the exhibit by donating a brick. Each personalized brick will be installed as part of the pathway to Africa.

Expected completion of this portion of the African Expansion is in 2024.
