Off To A New Start

The Audubon Zoo in New Orleans, which has been closed since Hurricane Katrina, re-opened on Friday. The people were all teary-eyed, when they started in the zoo. It's a very sad time for the city, a city without families, or children right now.

The zoo had to lay off 600 workers, after Katrina. They lost 2 otters, a racoon, and 2,000 trees. But, the rest of the animals are in good shape.

The Aquarium of the Americas in the French Quarter, also run by the Audubon Society, was not as lucky as the Audubon Zoo. It lost 10,000 animals. Also, they say that the Louisiana Nature Center may never open.
