Getting To Know You
- as seen by -Madeleine Thompson
Did you know that next week, July 19-25, is National Zoo Keeper Week?
On Wild View, you’ll be getting to know some of the animals that WCS’s keepers work with in their fun, but hard, jobs as wildlife caretakers and animal ambassadors.
Here, a South American tapir gets to know her keeper in her own special way as he feeds her calf outside the Bronx Zoo’s old Elephant House (today’s Zoo Center) in May 1959.
Salute zoo keepers and the wildlife they protect. Stop by one of our keeper chats throughout the week at the Bronx Zoo.
