Asia Trail Dilemma Stations


Natural conservation involves making hard choices. In order to bring these dilemmas to life, this series of kiosks installed in the National Zoo’s Asia Trail. Visitors are first introduced to real-world issues, such as dam construction, wildlife preserves, and road construction, and must then decide which choices they would make. Video interviews with stakeholders such as villagers, conservationists, and researchers allow visitors to meet the people who are impacted by their decisions. After visitors submit their choices, they are able to see how other zoo visitors voted.

Produced by Terra Incognita in 2006 for the Smithsonian National Park Zoo permanent exhibition Asia Trail.
