DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - The Lake Superior Zoo in Duluth is seeking state assistance in a supplemental flood relief bill and allowing the city to reinstate a tourism tax. After members of the Zoological Society met with Mayor Don Ness last week, both parties agreed that the current operations at the zoo are not sustainable in the long term and changes will be needed to ensure a healthy future for the attraction. Society officials support the mayor's vision for the St. Louis River Corridor and says the zoo should be an important part of that plan. Among future plans for the zoo are turning the former Polar Shores exhibit into an amphitheater and a new exhibit called "Bear Territory" that would include several species of bears.
