BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- The Binder Park Zoo has won national and international acclaim for its innovative Wild Africa exhibit.
It features a savanah where the animals roam around free in a huge multi-acre enclosure, and it’s the people who are confined to controlled spaces. But there is something missing, a lion.
Zoo officials say a lion exhibit is the most requested, and traditionally one of the most popular animals at zoos.
That’s why they have begun a fundraising campaign to bring lions to Battle Creek.
They are announcing the 3-million dollar capital campaign this week.
It will cover the cost of creating and populating a Lion exhibit and other improvements.
