National Zoo Keeper Week—TWP’s BREZ Team

Happy National Zoo Keeper’s Week!

Our keepers are the heart of what we do here at Tanganyika. They work extremely hard every day to ensure that our animals receive top-notch care. We would definitely not be where we are today without their commitment, love, and passion for our animals. The bonds that our keepers and animals have formed is truly remarkable to see. We consistently have visitors who mention how well-cared for and happy our animals look and that is due to our amazing keepers team.

Thank you, keepers. It takes a special person to do what you do. We appreciate you all more than we can express in one week!

Our Children’s zoo, birds, roos & ed team is clearly a very versatile team, working with a large variety of different animals from rare birds to reptiles to kangaroos, chickens, rabbits and more.
