NEWS - Waco's Cameron Park Zoo

Waco's Cameron Park Zoo has received a huge financial boost....
Two Waco philanthropists, Jim and Nell Hawkins, donated $1 million to the zoo Thursday.

It's the largest single donation in the zoo's history. Zoo officials say the money will be used for the Asian forest expansion and will build [an] orangutan [and komodo dragon] exhibit. Hawkins says he did it because it was the right thing to do.
