Madagascan rainforest brought to life

A little piece of Madagascar has been transported to Switzerland, with the recreation of the Masoala Rainforest in Zurich Zoo. Wild Talk speaks to Martin Bauert, Curator of Conservation and Botany, to find out how they did it and what benefits the exhibition can bring to the national park in Madagascar. Zurich Zoo is part of the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums, a member of IUCN.
