Kansas zoo receiving donation for tiger exhibit

Wichita, Kansas

November 1 – A donor is giving the Sedgwick County Zoo money for an Asian tiger exhibit, but there’s a catch. The community must come up with part of the cash.

The piece of land between the Downing Gorilla Forest and the Asian forest could soon become an Asian tiger exhibit. An anonymous donor is giving the zoo $1 million dollars to build the exhibit.

The zoo must match the million with other contributions. If that happens, then the donor will kick in another million to complete the total $3 million cost of the exhibit.

Visitors at the zoo say they’ll be excited to see the new exhibit. If the zoo meets its fundraising goals, the exhibit could be open by late 2008 to early 2009.
