    This is a story about the incredible dedication of the directors of the Cherry Brook Zoo. Len and Linda Collrin have lived and raised a family in the zoo for thirty years. It has been a constant struggle to keep it open, and things have been especially tough since the City of Saint John cut Cherry Brook’s funding seven years ago. The struggle has been ongoing, and is finally paying off. The city has restored some funding, but it isn’t enough. The Zoo only has three years left before it is overrun by deficits and forced to close. But the Collrins, and the zoos supporters, refuse to give up hope.
