Summary

This 1986 photograph of Monkey Island illustrates the current trend of zoo animal exhibitry. Monkey Island is home to several species of animals including Barbary macaque monkeys, Oriental short-clawed otters and several types of fish. Multi-species enclosures give the animals a more natural setting and allow the zoo visitor to see how different animals co-exist in the same habitat.
