National Zoo Keeper Week

 Buy Tickets

At the Zoo - July 24, 2016 / 10:00 am

Discover a day in the life of a zoo keeper!  Join keepers and staff for activities and displays about their work here at the Zoo.

Animal demonstrations will focus on how our animals interact with their most trusted caretakers.

Have conversations with our animal care staff and learn about their journey to become keepers at Seneca Park Zoo, their relationship with our animals, and their dedicated conservation efforts.

Zoo Keepers will give presentations on grounds, answer questions, and lead animal demonstrations throughout the week. Docents and ZooTeens will also be on grounds to educate guests about what it takes to be a zoo keeper.

Guests can even test their strength at the Elephant Barn, pushing wheelbarrows that weigh as much as the ones zoo keepers have to move every day.

Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 9:30 a.m. members enjoying early hours can meet and greet with a keeper.

Tuesday and Thursday at 9:30 a.m. members enjoying early hours can tour the animal hospital and learn more about veterinary exams and health assessments.
