PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  This project consisted of metal halide flood lights mounted on two poles on each side of the savanna so that Zoo visitors could see if there were any animals out grazing during night time events. The lights were designed to have pale blue filters to emulate the look of moonlight and were strategically placed to shine through the leaves of existing trees to further give the illusion of moonlight trickling through the trees.
