Meet the Keeper
Free informative talks at animal enclosures are offered to visitors daily. Typically we introduce you to our animals, discuss the attributes of that species, how the species has adapted to survive in its environment, conservation concerns for the species and why they appear on our collections plan. We have informal question and answer sessions after each talk.
