The third week in July is when we recognize and celebrate the dedicated zookeepers who keep our zoos and aquariums humming. Zookeeper’s faces may change from year to year but the hard work, resourcefulness and commitment remain the same. I salute you all and especially the staff at my home base, the Central Park Zoo. Thank you for allowing me to take your photos while you perform your tasks with good humor. We are open 365 days a year thru rain, snow, summer heat and all holidays. National Zookeeper Week starts today. How about if you go to a zoo this week tell a zookeeper how much they are appreciated?

Fabulous pics honoring the work of CPZ’s Zookeepers – thanks Judy! And not sure if you heard the story about a Zookeeper who called a coworker at home and said they were out of camel food. The Zookeeer at home said, Alpaca lunch….. .:)

Great collection of photos Judy honoring the CPZ zookeepers. Love the expressions on some of the animals. They seem to be looking so admiringly at their zookeepers.
