Thanks to Our Keepers

Thanks to our keepers. I say this many times a day.

Zookeepers are ambassadors for the animals in their care. They are conservationists. They are educators. And they are experts on animal behavior. Our keepers know what lemurs like for lunch, when cobras do their dance, where birds make the best nests, and how to swim with sharks.

Our keepers foster my love for animals. They inspire me. Together, we make photos of animals that we hope will encourage people to protect and preserve them.

Stop by WCS’s five wildlife parks including the Bronx Zoo, Central Park Zoo, New York Aquarium, Prospect Park Zoo, and Queens Zoo and say thanks to our keepers.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Watch for zookeeper stories on Wild View and activities at zoos and aquariums near you during National Zookeeper Week 2019 from July 21-27.
