THE BRONX - Starting next month, Bronx residents and visitors can get discounted tickets to one of the borough's biggest tourist attractions.

The Bronx Zoo will offer a 20-percent discount on total experience tickets purchased online as of Aug. 1. Director Jim Breheney says the special offer is being made after visitation to the zoo decreased up to 30 percent this month.

According to Breheney, high temperatures have kept people away. About 275,000 visitors came to the zoo this July compared to 400,000 last year.

Zoo officials say the offer will be available for the entire month.
