After a lot of outcry from the Dallas community and surrounding areas the zoo built the new hippo out post.

Highland Capital Management helped as many people as they could to see the 5,000 square foot habitat and the hippos that they so desperately wanted. James Dondero and Linda Owens also held a Mothers day event at the zoo to raise money for The Family Place. Follow James on Linkedin.
