“Poo and pee is our bread and butter,” that’s what one zoo official is saying about his Dallas Zoo’s new energy plan.
The Dallas Zoo will soon be electrically powered by animal droppings, cardboard and tree limbs, with the additional help of a biogas generator. Although the project could cost up to $1 million dollars, the project is expected to pay for itself within 10 years.
A zoo spokesperson says that the Dallas Zoo sees themselves not only as a fun place for families, but as a conservation organization.
Is anyone else afraid of what might happen if biogas generators start using, well, our droppings?
