National Zoo Keeper Week: July 18-24, 2010
It’s National Zoo Keeper Week! Maybe we’re biased, but we think our Keepers are the best. Thanks for all the hard work you do every day to care for our animal residents and to make Reid Park Zoo a destination for conservation, education, and FUN!
National Zoo Keeper Week is celebrated each year beginning on the third Sunday in July. During the week, zoos nationwide honor animal care professionals and the work they do in animal care, conservation, and education. There are approximately 6,000 animal care professionals in the United States.
