The methodology of this study involves the data collection of primary and secondary data, where the data will be analysed and its finding will be used in design development and proposal. Subsequently, with the concept of ‘Wild Gems’, the design strategy and ideas have been transformed into the physical form to showcase the precious and outstanding natural environment of wildlife habitat. The physical character of this study will emphasize on the space planning of the animal exhibit and public space with the systematic linkage and trail that connect one exhibit to another. While the environment context focuses on the implementation of plant selection in wildlife habitat that will give benefit towards their welfare and lifestyle. In order to cater the issues in the site, the objectives which to study the image, element, and management guidelines towards the liveability of the zoological park and to propose the best element of zoological park design that can create an interest among the public, towards animals and its surrounding has been defined.
