SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- It could mean an African savanna, an Arctic playground and a misty gorilla forest.

Those are among the projects Hogle Zoo says they could tackle with $65 million in voter-approved bonding.

The zoo took its wish list before the Salt Lake County Council yesterday.

Zoo director Craig Dinsmore says the projects would serve the community for generations to come. But first they need voters to approve the multimillion dollar bond, and hope to get the measure on November's ballot.

Council members voted yesterday to send the zoo's request to the county's Debt Review Committee.
