In 2014, the 235,000 sf Wonders of Wildlife (Bass Pro) will reopen in Springfield, Missouri, after major renovations. This zoo/aquarium consistently attracted more than 225,000 visitors annually. Epoxy-coated reinforcing bar is extensively used due to the water features and is included in the 250,000 gallon aquarium to bring quality spaces for the fish.
Wonders of Wildlife features a flooded rain forest exhibit, shark and ray touch tanks, catfish and turtle feeding pools, a large living coral tank, a bird aviary and a nocturnal swamp. The building also includes a new 180 seat multi-purpose auditorium/theatre and new Conservation Education Center/Exhibition Hall.
