Back in March the Oakland Zoo was forced to close down temporarily due to COVID-19, although now it looks like the the beloved zoo may be closing down for good.
As months passed, the Oakland Zoo has had to let go many of their employees. And have even made drastic pay cuts for their zookeepers.
The zoo has lost 2.5 million in revenue as each moth passes. Nik Dehejia, who is the Executive Vice President of the Oakland Zoo said that the zoo will permanently close within the next three months if they aren’t allowed to reopen.
