Zoo Officials Optimistic About Accreditation; Thornton Exit Now Set For September


Henson Robinson Zoo officials are confident that the zoo will have its accreditation renewed this fall. 

 

An inspector visited the zoo late last month for a follow-up… after the Association of Zoos and Aquariums put that renewal on hold last year.  Zoo director Talon Thornton says the concerns raised last year have been largely corrected… and a couple of new issues that came up in the inspection are also being addressed. 

 

The AZA vote on accreditation is expected in September… right around the time that Thornton will leave his job as zoo director after 18 years.
