Tiger Trek interpretation and graphics
After two and half years, we’re very excited to see our work on the new Tiger Trek precinct at Taronga Zoo launched.
With Ian Bracegirdle of Motherworks, at the helm of the project team, Nuttshell collaborated on the concept and creation of this brand new tiger precinct. From set dressing props to interpretative signage and wayfinding Nuttshell created all of the graphics to make this precinct come to life.
With only 400 Sumatran Tigers left in the wild, and mass deforestation and habitat loss occurring due to expanding palm oil plantations, the aim of the exhibit is to educate visitors about the importance of sustainable palm oil while falling in love with these powerful animals up close. On entering the precinct, you are taken on a ‘flight’ to Sumatra, landing in the small village of Way Kambas, Sumatra. From here you enter the Way Kambas National Park to visit the tigers before ending in a supermarket, where the visitor is challenged to shop and discover how their shopping choices can save these critically endangered animals.
