Great news, are there any other plans in the works to bring anymore antelope before the grand opening?Brian

Brian, Looks like a few more probably will arrive before the April opening. Better news is that the NC Legislature seems poised to provide over $3 million for African Plains barns here that would allow the Zoo to bring dozens of other antelope, even ones that don't "overwinter" well in North Carolina. The barns would protect them on the coldest days. Outdoor paddocks would let them exercise, off exhibit, when the weather warms a bit.
That is even better news, so does that mean that talks are going well enough to add us to the budget?
We are hearing good things about the African Plains barns and another request for some facilities for the horticulture staff here.
Very good, I am glad to see that the legislature has stepped up to help.
