Doug has begun scoring music and sound design for this exciting new exhibit opening in late May!!
He's using lots of Q Up Arts sounds while creating a beautiful Asian score with indigenous instruments. Guests will be treated to a very immersive experience both for the eyes and the ears.
The highlight of Expedition Asia will be two Clouded leopards. They are one of the best climbers in the cat family. They can climb upside down underneath tree branches, hang from their feet, and descend from the canopy head first.
Clouded leopards are an endangered species due to habitat loss and illegal hunting. The Clouded leopards at Loveland Living Planet Aquarium will be part of a Species Survival Plan, administred by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. The goals of the program are to stabilize populations, improve population genetics, and develop conservation efforts in natural habitats.
Another top attraction will be Asian small-clawed otters. They are more social and vocal than most otter species. These otters are threatened by habitat destruction, hunting, and pollution. The otters will be an ambassador for their species, teaching guests about why and how they should be protected.
Giant Asian fish will also be showcased in Expedition Asia. Asia's rivers are home to arowana, Giant gourami and the Clown featherback. Guests will come face to face with these facinating, colorful fish and an exhibit that offers an underwater view and an above water view.
The Loveland Living Planet Aquarium is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. We provide the community with countless educational opportunities to understand and respect our Earth and its living ecosystems. This new exhibit gallery will create an all new experience for guests to explore, discover, and learn!
