American Zoo And Aquarium Association Delays Vote On Chaffee Zoo
FRESNO, CA (September 20 , 2004) The American Zoo and Aquarium Association (AZA) has tabled a vote on the extension of the Chaffee Zoo accreditation until November, 2004. The Zoo’s current accreditation expires March, 2005. A request was made to extend the Zoo’s accreditation until a full time Director is in place. The AZA chose not to respond to the request until after the fate of Measure Z, the sales tax benefiting Chaffee Zoo, is determined in the November election.
