Continued growth expected at Zoo Atlanta

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Zoo Atlanta officials say attendance in 2012 was second-highest in the organization's 123-year history.

Officials say last year, more than 866,400 people visited the zoo, second only to 2000 when 1 million people visited the zoo after giant pandas Lun Lun and Yang Yang arrived.

Zoo Atlanta representatives say new features including programs offering visitors a chance to feed giraffes, African elephants, komodo dragons and giant pandas were offered last spring. Officials say the rising number of Zoo Atlanta visitors forecasts a future of continued growth.
