Dear Friends and Followers,
In the Fiscal Year 2010 adopted budget, the Bronx Zoo and New York Aquarium received a total of $9.3 million. If the proposed cut is accepted, the zoo and aquarium face a $3.9 million cut, bringing down city support by 42 percent to $5.4 million.
This is a crippling budget cut. Not just to operational ability of these institutions, but also to the scientific education of so many New Yorkers (children and adults).
