Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago will be reconstructing its lion habitat space thanks to a $15 million donation from philanthropists Richard and Roxelyn Pepper.

The donation completed the $40 million goal the zoo had to begin construction on a new space for the lions that will help expand their living space and create a better environment.

Kovler Lion House space will be renamed after its donors, to the Pepper Family Wildlife Center.

The project along with other major renovations for its exhibits, is expected to take up to two years to complete.
