Zoos Victoria brings together three world-class zoos: Healesville Sanctuary, Melbourne Zoo and Werribee Open Range Zoo. Every year, over 1.7 million people visit the zoos, making them one of Australia’s largest paid tourist attractions. Having outgrown their existing website, Zoos Victoria began redevelopment with a vision to refocus their online experience.

Presented by Matt Fenton and Lindsay Gaines from Monkii, this case study explores the phased development approach taken to deliver successive iterations of the site ahead of launch to give content creators a head start migrating their considerable amount of existing content. Also covered will be:

  • selection of Drupal as the CMS
  • contextual calls to action on key content pages
  • updatable interactive maps built with JavaScript and CSS
  • managing four sub-sites each with their own menus and home page on the same domain

The final result for Zoos Victoria is an integrated suite of online properties running on a modern and powerful Drupal 7 system.
