CAMPAIGN FOR CONSERVATION AND COMMUNITY

Saving the orangutans, strengthening Indianapolis, connecting our children and families to the world.

THE ATRIUM AND THE BEACON OF HOPE

The iconic Beacon of Hope stretches 150 feet into the sky. At night, it is illuminated by lights the orangutans turn on themselves, reminding Indianapolis that there is still hope for orangutans, but that hope is centered on us. We believe that the legend of The Beacon of Hope will spread far and wide, and that Hoosiers will tell its story to visitors for generations to come.

The Atrium below is a four-season ecosystem where orangutans and humans can come together regardless of weather conditions. With an internal height of 90 feet, it allows orangutans to climb and move as orangutans, not as humans have constrained them in the past. The Atrium has both indoor and outdoor viewing for guests, and houses interpretive spaces and a theater-style demonstration laboratory.
