This group will help in the planning and creation of a new zoo for Texas, the Lone Star Zoo. The zoo should be accredited, credentialed, and actively cooperating with other zoos to pursue wildlife conservation efforts.
Unlike many traditional zoos, this new wildlife facility should provide an opportunity to try new, innovative approaches for wildlife care and long term support.
Austin is an ideal city for a world class zoo. Located in the heart of Texas, Austin is ideally located as a center of wildlife conservation and education in Texas. The community will jump at the chance to support such a facility. A zoo in Austin could easily become a shining star for Texas and the country as a whole.
