This attraction opened in 2010 and harbours a lot of interesting exhibits, highly influenced by the regional culture ...very recommendable.
Tropical Zoo Plants assisted on creating the lush Amazon Rainforest exhibit of 1000 sqm. All the plants travelled from the rainforest nursery in Limon, Costa Rica to the Akvaryum in Istanbul, Turkey.
4 pcs 40 foot Reefer Container were sailed across the atlantic and all these authentic rainforest plants now roam in Istanbul.
In 2018 we made a visit to evaluate and discuss supplementing the collection of plants. Soil -and water analysis were made. Maintenance practice -and animal/visitor pressure on the plants, were also evaluated. Other climatical aspects, such as irrigation/fertilizing, temperature, humidity and light were addressed as well. Finally we proposed a list of plants, suitable to improve the overall image of the lush Amazon Rainforest.
In 2020 we are shipping a 40 foot container with plants to rejuvenate the Amazon Exhibit. We are looking forward to the result.
