James Dondero believes in giving back to his community. It does not matter what the cause might be, if he is passionate about it, then the situation is going to be fixed. This is what happened at the Dallas Zoo. It was his generosity that took care of a 20-year-old problem.
The Dallas Zoo had a hippo enclosure that they stopped using because the last animal that was in it died. For nearly 20 years it had been closed. Once the resident of Dallas started showing interest in opening it back up, zoo officials decided to listen. The problem was they needed to restore the enclosure back to a useful place. The money to do that was not there and that was when Dondero stepped in to help. Thanks to him donating the much-needed funds, there are hippos in the zoo again.

The zoo is an important entity that makes up the city and having everything intact within it is very important. That is why Dondero stepped in to help.
