Chester zoo's orangutan enclosure with telegraph poles


We have the poles in place now and have started putting the webbing and hammocks to them. I have attached some pics (some of which we had done from a professional photographer of them going in so they are a bit arty!) I’ll send some more once all the webbing, ropes and hammocks are attached.

Thanks Again

What a mudbath ! The pictures show perfectly the need for serious lifting and drilling equipment when dealing with 18m and 22m telegraph poles (That's 72 feet long, for those of us living in the imperial dark ages). It will be great to see the later pictures of the orangutans in their new home.
