Walking on the wild side

Fordham University owned most of the land which became the Bronx Zoo and New York Botanical Garden. Fordham sold it to the City of New York for only $1 000 under the condition that the lands be used for a zoo and garden As of 2010, the Bronx Zoo is home to more than 4 000 animals of 650 species, many of which are endangered or threatened species.
