Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington, District of Columbia — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Smithsonian's National Zoo
—125 Years —
In 1995, the Zoo debuted the O-Line, a series of towers and vine-like cables. It allows our orangutans to travel between the Great Ape House and Think Tank, if they choose to do so. Still innovative today, the O-Line is the only "orangutan transport system" of its kind.
Captions from images on marker:
Orangutans are tree-dwellers and experts on the O-Line.
The best time to see our orangutans on the O-Line is on warm days from 11-11:30am.
