Zoo seeks votes to get USA Today recognition


The Toledo Zoo is asking for votes to put it among USA Today’s Top 10 list of the best zoos in the United States.

Voting is open until noon Monday. Supporters can cast votes once per each electronic device daily at​awards/​travel/​best-us-zoo.

The 20 candidates in the Readers Choice Awards were selected based on annual attendance, total acreage, admission fees, contributions to conservation efforts, number of supporting members, and recent awards received. Zoos in Columbus, Cleveland, and Cincinnati also are among the finalists.
