The Oakland Zoo is now one step closer to possibly reopening!
The Alameda County Board of Supervisors voted in favor of variance for the zoo. Now, if approved by the state the variance would grant them special permission to reopen, and they could possibly open in less than two weeks!.
It costs about $1.2 million a month to operate the zoo and they are down to their last $3 million in reserve funds.
They’ve also received donations from the public, like the more than $180,000 raised by 6-year-old Andy Soulard to help keep the zoo open!
Jack Kulp and Carolyn McArdle talked about it on the air! Listen below...
