Visitors Still Flocking To NC Zoo During Recession

Officials at the North Carolina Zoo say attendance is up slightly.

About 730,000 visitors checked out the lions. monkeys, zebras and other animals between July 2008 and this June -- about 100 more
visitors than the year before.

Zoo officials say the rising popularity of day trips has attracted lots of budget-conscious visitors. The zoo also added a giraffe feeding station and a honey bee exhibit.

This was the sixth busiest year for the zoo, which opened in 1979.
