The Maryland Zoo Polar Bear Watch
It may be thousands of miles from the Arctic, but the Polar Bear exhibit at the Maryland Zoo looks and feels like home to the polar bear. Our team provided the design and construction of the exhibit, which includes pools of water and artificial stylized rockscapes indigenous to the bear’s natural environment. The exhibit is a mirror of the coastal areas where polar bears forage for food. Working with the zoo’s design team, we also incorporated a genuine tundra buggy into the exhibit so bear fans can have a true immersion experience. Visitors sit in the stationary buggy to get up close and personal with the bears, as if the visitors traversed the frozen tundra to see the bears in their natural habitat.
