​I have been a little less active lately and that will most likely continue until August. It's because I'm doing a masters degree. Whoa

The holidays are upon us! If you're thinking about getting one of your family members a pet this year make sure you do your research.

​In November 2011 our zoo lost two giraffes. Their deaths would mark my introduction to the media frenzy that follows the death of a charismatic animal. Amryn's death hit us all very hard, but before we were given even a second to process his passing it was time to answer to the media.

​When you're walking around the zoo you may hear an array of sounds. It's hard to know what they all mean but today I'll share with you what I've learned while working with animals.

​Something I hear quiet often when I'm going about my day is the notion that animals look sad or depressed in captivity. I read an interesting article about it recently and I thought I would share my thoughts.
