Puerto Rico’s Zoo Chooses Imagineear

The Dr. Juan A. Rivero Zoo, set in 45 acres of tropical jungle and gardens in Mayaguez, has asked Imagineear to create separate audio tours for adults and kids. The zoo provides visitors with the opportunity to see the animal and bird life found in Puerto Rico up close as well as those from more distant countries.

Over 340 species of reptiles, mammals and amphibians are on display including elephants, Andean condors, reptiles, Bengal tigers and hippos. The zoo also houses an outdoor bird sanctuary featuring free-flying parrots and tropical birds, a butterfly house as well as an arthropods museum, amphibian and reptile reserves. The two main areas are themed as the African Forest and the African Savannah.

The Zoo provides access to beautifully landscaped flora includes flowering trees, tropical foliage, colorful flowers and ponds. Friendly iguanas can be spotted walking along the pathways looking for shade.

‘Both audio tours were scripted in English and then translated into Spanish as well and incorporated many segments from interviews with the Zoo’s vet,’ says Eleonore Heijboer, Content Director at Imagineear.  ‘The Spanish recordings took place in Florida using Puerto Rican actors and then a very rich sound effects mix and music were added to all versions to fully immerse the visitor into this tropical animal paradise.’

The tours provided on Imagineear’s MediaPacker™ device with keypad, colour screen and intuitive navigation are now available to visitors.
