Happy National Zoo Keeper Week

Beginning today, zoos across the country are celebrating National Zoo Keeper Week, an annual celebration created by the American Association of Zoo Keepers (AAZK) that recognizes the accomplishments of animal care professionals. These hardworking animal lovers are not only responsible for the wellbeing of animal ambassadors in America’s zoos, but in many cases they’re also involved in conservation causes that make a difference for wildlife in the field around the world.

As people who work most closely with the animals, zoo keepers offer unique professional and personal insights into the need for protecting our wildlife and vanishing habitats.

For all keepers do for the L.A. Zoo, we thank you!
