Zoo Crew

Zoo Crew members welcome visitors and make suggestions for a meaningful and fun zoo visit. Roving through the Zoo, they help visitors who need directions and answer questions along the way, letting visitors know about any special programs taking place — from Animal Training Sessions to Featured Zoo Programs. They may also assist the Behavioral Programs Manager with special projects.
