zookeeper for a day

DD had the opportunity to participate in the “Zookeeper for a Day” program at the St. Louis Zoo. She had a wonderful time and wants to do it again next summer. The program took place at the Children’s Zoo, where all the kids have fun!

The junior zookeepers are paired with a zookeeper for the day. In addition to going behind the scenes at the Children’s Zoo, cleaning goat cages, feeding meatballs to the otters, making lunch for rabbits and chinchillas, delivering a toucan to the River’s Edge, etc., she also presented two animals to zoo visitors.

All in all, a great day and one she will remember for a long time! ~~Rhonda 🙂

    That is really special that she had the opportunity to do that! I can know she loved it! I would have loved it! LOL! My daughter Cristy was a Zookeeper at the Hershey Zoo for several years. She has a degree in Wildlife Science from Penn State. I can see she was in her glory! Good for her!
