BATTLE CREEK (WTVB) The Binder Park Zoo has won national and international acclaim for its innovative Wild Africa exhibit but there is something missing. The Exhibit is a zoo feature where the animals roam around free in a huge multi-acre enclosure, and it’s the people who are confined to controlled spaces. Zoo officials say a lion exhibit is the most requested, and traditionally one of the most popular animals at zoos. That’s why they have begun a fundraising campaign to bring lions to Battle Creek. They are announcing the $3 million capital campaign this week with the official word released on Wednesday. It will cover the cost of creating and populating a Lion exhibit and other improvements.
