Zoo Atlanta to break ground on new exhibit

ATLANTA (AP) - Officials at Zoo Atlanta are set to break ground on a new space to showcase amphibian and reptile exhibits.

Zoo Atlanta spokeswoman Keisha Hines says officials will break ground on the new amphibian and reptile experience Tuesday at 10 a.m.

Hines says the new exhibit space will replace the 51-year-old World of Reptile building - which is the zoo's oldest structure. Hines says the new reptile and amphibian exhibit space is the foundation of the largest fundraising effort in Zoo Atlanta history.

Hines says Zoo Atlanta officials have raised just under $22 million in an ongoing capital campaign to fund construction of the roughly 14,000 square-foot exhibit space.
