Thanks to Our Keepers
- as seen by -Julie Larsen Maher
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.
