Willow Park Zoo now "new and improved"

<strong>LOGAN—</strong> They took it over themselves in order to save the Willow Park Zoo from closing, and now members of the zoo advisory board are excited about running what they call the “new and improved zoo.”

Board Chairman Troy Christensen said that includes work on the gift shop, the education center, and other areas. On KVNU’s <a href=”http://610kvnu.com/assets/podcaster/328/2013_05_01_328_10507_2867.mp3″ target=”_blank”>Crosstalk show Tuesday</a>, Christensen said he hopes new animals will be joining the zoo as well before too long.

“We are able to provide a home and life and enrichment activities for them. They would in essence either die naturally or have to be euthanized,” Christensen said. “We’re able to bring those animals and actually provide enjoyment for both.”

Christensen also said a lot of people would like to see the bears brought back, but he said it might be hard because they need to be in a rehabilitation mode and there are stringent rules about space and other requirements.
