The Amphibian and Reptile Conservation Campus (ARCC).
scope: Construction is set to begin on ARCC, a 2.5-acre home for its amphibians and 12,000-square-foot reptile facility, in August. The $18m development will also provide immersive educational elements focusing on STEM, and will include a new species of Cuban crocodiles. ARCC will also feature a greenhouse that allows guests to watch herpetologists at work, and a large outdoor ecological habitat where children can collect specimens and take them back to the Adventure Lab to explore. Zoo Knoxvilles herpetology team is internationally acclaimed and helped found the Radiated Tortoise SAFE programme, which is working in collaboration with conservationists in Madagascar to return rehabilitated tortoises to the wild.
