ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The county may pitch in money to help bring otters to the zoo. The BioPark hopes to add a river otter exhibit to the zoo.
Under a proposal, Bernalillo County would give $2 million to bring the exhibit to the zoo.
The Albuquerque Journal reports next week Bernalillo County Commission Chairwoman Debbie O’Malley will ask to increase a bond by $2 million. It would go up for vote this fall and would not result in tax increases.
This is all part of a master plan to upgrade the BioPark.
Officials hope the have the master plan ready to present to city councilors by the end this summer.
