Description

In celebration of National Zookeeper Appreciation Week, Franklin Park Zoo and Stone Zoo invite guests for a special day to see what it’s like to be a zookeeper! See some of the day-to-day activities zookeepers participate in, such as feedings and trainings! Join them for special scheduled zookeeper encounters, where guests can ask questions directly to the Zoo’s staff and discover what it’s like to work with the animals every day.

Zoo New England’s dedicated team of animal care professionals provide the highest quality

of care to all of the animals that call the Zoo home. A keeper’s day can include an array of

tasks including cleaning, food preparation and feeding, medical treatment, training,

enrichment, landscaping, exhibit design, animal introductions, public outreach and education,

and so much more. Working with animals requires constant complex problem solving and

progressive learning. Zookeepers are also involved in research projects, field work and

impactful conservation initiatives to positively benefit wildlife and species survival.
