Maryland Zoo lost $3 million last fiscal year, top official says

December 07, 2006|By Greg Garland | Greg Garland,Sun Reporter

Financial problems confronting the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore are continuing to grow, the zoo's top official told the Board of Public Works yesterday.

The zoo, which is subsidized by the state, lost $3 million during the fiscal year that ended June 30, said Billie Grieb, the Zoo's president and chief executive.

She said she expects losses to top that this year because the zoo's funding hasn't changed even though expenses have increased. Grieb and officials from the Sports Legends at Camden Yards museum and Geppi's Entertainment Museum - both at Camden Station near Oriole Park - talked at the meeting about different ideas for marketing their attractions to draw more tourists.
