ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Thanks to public and private contributions, the Flint Riverquarium broke even for the first half of the fiscal year.

Director Scott Loehr updated the Dougherty County Commission on events at the Riverquarium today. He says people are still contributing money to the organization which helps its bottom line.

He says new promotions are helping to attract visitors. Moonshine the albino alligator is also a big hit. Loehr said, "Attendance is comparable to last year which is a good thin. We're not seeing anymore of a slide in attendance, so we hope things have leveled off and maybe in 2010 we'll start to see an upswing in attendance at the Riverquarium."

Since the Riverquarium opened in 2004, close to a half million people have visited.
