#Keepers Care at Zoo New England

Here at Zoo New England, we know why we care about our keepers and the profound role they play in our Zoos. Through their efforts both within our Zoos and beyond the exhibits, zookeepers instill our mission 365 days per year. Caretaking. Training. Educating. Inspiring. Zookeepers spread their passion for animals and conservation through the amazing work they do here at Zoo New England.

In honor of National Zookeeper Week, we asked zookeepers at Franklin Park Zoo and Stone Zoo what it is they love about their jobs and the important role they play.
