Since its construction in 2006, our state-of-the-art Tropical Forest Conservatory has undergone major redesigns every three years to showcase the ecology of tropical forest regions around the world. As part of the three-year planning and design process behind our new Tropical Forest exhibit, Phipps staff members traveled to Hawaii to study first-hand the region’s biodiversity hotspots, natural resources and culture. Follow their adventures!
