RTE article The world’s first ever gorilla tent has been built in Switzerland by a team of Swiss scientists.
The tent is a six-metre tall tent built to protect a baby gorilla in the wild and can be used as a place for the baby to sleep.
The team at the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) say they have built the tent on a farm in the Swiss canton of Hesse.
It has been called the “world’s first” and is designed to keep the baby gorilla safe and to allow it to grow.
They say it was made using recycled materials and that it could be easily built from scratch if the time comes.
“The design is quite unique and has a very modern look,” said ZSL director of research and development Dr Peter Nadelmann.
“I think it is quite a unique project that has to be done on such a small scale.”
There are lots of potential uses for it, such as housing or other projects where there is a lot of potential for new growth and a lot for conservation.
“It is not the first time that a baby was brought to the zoo.
In February, the zoo unveiled a baby baby gorilla cub at the New York Zoo.
The zoo says that since it was announced, it has received hundreds of phone calls from people all over the world and is still waiting for a suitable place for him to grow up.
