Houston Heart of the Zoo

The Heart of the Zoo project at the Houston Zoo includes a 300,000 gallon body of freshwater mimicking a natural Texas Wetland found throughout the state. The planned exhibit program includes a variety of native Texas species of fish, alligators, and various endangered birds. In addition to the planned star species the Zoo wanted display, the wetland has become home to a variety of local insects, birds, turtles, and fish that have made there way in to the Zoo by some means. The Texas Wetlands Exhibit is a wonderful example and a show piece of what a very healthy, clean wetland should look like in Texas and communicates that message of conservation very clearly to the visiting public.

We are proud to be a part of a project that aims to inspire empathy and conservation of wetlands! Check out the links below to learn more about the project!
