Big savings in British Zoo
In Knowsley Safari Park, UK, RubberGuard Fencing has been used in a completely new and revolutionary way, which has saved the park a lot of money and provided safety for animals and humans while maintaining the freedom of movement of the monkeys.
The park has installed "threads" of the wire at the exit from the park which the cars drive through at the end of the visit. The wires are conductive and the monkeys therefore jump down from the cars when the cars drive through the wires. The monkeys are able to detect the current from a distance, so they jump off before there is contact with the wires.
The cars can drive out of the enclosure - without monkeys on the roof.
