Niabi Zoo Director Search
The Niabi Zoo in Coal Valley may soon have a new director. After receiving applications from across the country, the Niabi Zoo Oversight Committee has interviewed five finalists.
Oversight Committee Chair, Joe Taylor says the next step is to narrow the list even further and hold second interviews with one or two candidates.
He says the committee hopes to have a new director on board by late May or early June.
The committee received 26 applications for the position, formerly held by Marc Heinzman, who resigned last fall. Since then, assistant director Dan Meates has served as acting director.
Opening day is April 11.
