The Texas Zoo will be undergoing some expansion plans in the near future. First, the new changes to designated flood plans has placed the Texas Zoo into a floodway. The zoo will now be putting up new berms around the zoo in order to meet the FEMA mandates and to also avoid a zoo disaster similar to what happened with the flood of 1998. The South Texas Zoological Society will soon be putting together a campaign to raise funds for the project, which is estimated to cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Secondly, the zoo will be expanding three acres. Plans for the new acreage include an ampitheater, more restrooms and a water park.
