The Detroit Zoo has been busy celebrating National Zoo Keeper Week!
Hosted from July 18-24, National Zookeeper Week is an annual event that honors the hard work, dedication and passion of the people who care for zoo animals around the country.
To say “thank you” to the hard-working individuals who ensure the animals at the Detroit Zoo receive the highest level of care, we planned a full week of events to make them feel valued and appreciated.
These events included:
• An animal care staff breakfast
• A vet ice cream social
• An all-staff picnic
• A food truck rally
• A Zookeeper Olympics
• An Executive Leadership Team cookout
• Dessert Day
We had so much fun at all these events, and we wanted to share the fun with all our readers. Scroll down to see photos we took throughout the week and help us thank our animal care staff for doing an excellent job 365 days of the year.
