OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA - JULY 01: The entrance to the Oakland Zoo sits empty on July 01, 2020 in Oakland, California. The Oakland Zoo is on the brink of permanent closure after being temporarily closed since March  due to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic shelter-in-place order. The 100 acre zoo is losing an estimated $2 million a month and has laid off nearly half of its 250 person staff. The zoo is requesting to be designated an outdoor museum so it can reopen like some botanical gardens and regional parks have. (Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)
