It takes lots of people with many different skills to run a zoo. Everyone knows that the Zoo has animal keepers and veterinarians but there are MANY MORE jobs that you probably didn’t think of. Are you good at math and want to be an accountant? We have those! Are you the creative type considering becoming a graphic designer? We have those too! This is a special opportunity for elementary, middle, and high school students to learn about career opportunities within a Zoo. Students will meet with a variety of Zoo professionals to learn about their careers and receive practical advice on how to prepare for the future.
