It’s National Zoo Keeper Week!

This week (July 19-25) is National Zoo Keeper Week–a great opportunity for us to appreciate the hard work Reid Park Zoo’s Keepers do every day of the year! Sure, there’s some cuddling of fuzzy little babies, but there’s also a lot of cleaning, coaxing, and hauling involved in caring for animals. Our Keepers take it all in stride because they love what they do and they know their work is important; meaningful experiences at the Zoo translate to deeper connections with animals and nature for hundreds of thousands of guests who visit our facility each year. You can see from these photos that our Keepers are committed to making sure every single animal at the Zoo—from the biggest elephant to the smallest insect–receives the best possible care for its whole life. Thanks, Zoo Keepers!
