In January and February this year, the Leipzig Zoo will once again shine in bright colors - despite the energy crisis.
The Tropical Glow made its debut in 2018. According to the zoo, around 15,000 individual lights have been installed in the outdoor area this year. Around eight kilometers of cable were laid indoors, including in the Gondwanaland tropical hall.
With a view to the energy crisis, the zoo weighed up the costs and benefits of the tropical lights very intensively and then decided to let the lights shine again this year. "Even in difficult times, the zoo would like to offer a contact point for residents and guests in the dark season and in a difficult environment," said a spokeswoman on request. In addition, the worldwide commitment to species protection is also financed by such additional offers.
