Strengthening Respect and Understanding for Wildlife
Because the Dallas Zoo is directly across the street, the community committee and design team wanted this station to reinforce and expand upon the zoo's mission of "strengthening respect and understanding for wildlife."

Submitted by the Zoological Society membership and engraved into the platform pavers, quotations from 26 sources -- ranging from Gandhi to Groucho Marx and Star Trek's Mr. Spock -- impress the reader about the importance of respecting animal life.

Station design sets the stage for visitors to the zoo and encourages DART riders to reflect upon the zoo's purpose as a vital contributor to Dallas' quality of life.

Shadows of Another LandDallas Zoo Art
by Douglas Bracken
A 300-foot steel-panel guardrail separates the station platform from the bus drop-off area. It serves as an artistic work as well as a functional element. Design patterns draw inspiration from animal skin patterns and traditional paintings of the Ndebele, who typically paint their dwellings with abstract geometric forms.
