No matter how you look at it, $17 million is a lot of money. And it’s how much the Maryland Zoo is investing to renovate and improve their African Journey exhibits.
The renovations encompass the most highly visited exhibits at the zoo, specifically the elephant, giraffe, and lion habitats. But beyond these costs, and the closures during the busy summer season, what does this all mean for the zoo and the Greater Baltimore community in the long run and why is it so important?
In the September 14, 2018, digital-edition of The Baltimore Business Journal, Ed Brake, CEO and Managing Director here at Ellin & Tucker and Vice President of the Board of Trustees at the Maryland Zoo, lends his perspective on these new renovations and what they mean for both the zoo and the city.
