WPTV reports on The National Elephant Center in Fellsmere, FL, USA, a collaborative effort of 73 Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) member institutions:
“National Elephant Center officials are expected next week to hammer out a budget and timeline for turning their dream of a 225-acre ranch for training and retiring zoo elephants into a reality this year in the city’s agricultural northwest area, south of the C-54 Canal.
“‘We have made a decision on a construction company,’ center Chairman Rick Borangi said Wednesday. ‘They’re in the ($2.5 million) ballpark. So there’s no surprises.’
“He declined to identify the builder, whose proposal was selected from a handful of others, until the center’s board can notify other finalists vying for the job. He said his organization still has to negotiate details, such as areas of possible cost-savings, before awarding the contract.”
