The Dallas Zoo welcomed a very special delivery: two super-sized Nile hippopotamuses from Albuquerque, N.M., and Los Angeles. Adhama and Boipelo are now sharing the spacious barn and pools in our new $14 million Simmons Hippo Outpost, set to open next month.
Through the Association of Zoos and Aquariumsâ€™ Species Survival Plan (SSP), these two Nile hippos are being paired on a breeding recommendation in hopes that one day theyâ€™ll start their own family. Theyâ€™ll share shiny, new state-of-the-art digs here in Dallas set to open late April.
Nolwazi, Amahle, Zola, Tendaji, Mlilo and baby Ajabu joined our four â€śGolden Girls,â€ť Jenny, Gypsy, Congo and Kamba. And since theyâ€™ve arrived, weâ€™ve soaked up every minute of this opportunity to get to know them.
The Zooâ€™s wonderful partnership with Childrenâ€™s Health allows us to take patientsâ€™ minds off of the treatment theyâ€™re undergoing. Through the Simmons Animal Safari program, weâ€™ve traveled to the hospital since 2014 for magical up-close animal encounters.
Now, more than ever, we need to encourage these future leaders to take action and protect endangered wildlife before they are gone forever.
