Cherry Brook Zoo Has 10 Year Plan Mapped Out

Cherry Brook Zoo is looking for 100 thousand dollars in funding from the municipalities that make up the Saint John region. 

It costs 455 thousand dollars a year to run the zoo which raises 355 thousand of that total. Last year, the zoo received 60 thousand dollars from the city and 5 thousand from Rothesay.

Cherry Brook's director of development Lynda Collrin tells CHSJ they have an ambitious 10 year plan which includes an expanded primate house for endangered species of monkeys. 

The newest addition to the zoo, a two year old Siberian tiger named Karma will be arriving from Winnipeg in a few days.
