ZAP - Zoo Ambassador Program
Interested in learning what it's like to be a zookeeper?  Kids ages 11-15 are invited to join the Zoo Ambassador Program (ZAP).  Each day the ZAP class will be assigned an animal to care for.  Learn fascinating facts about the animals such as their diets, behaviors and habitats; provide enrichment for the animals; and enjoy special behind-the-scenes opportunities while maintaining animal enclosures.  Diets will be created and fed to the animals.  Finish with craft projects for the animals or animal socialization.  A rare opportunity to be up close and personal with zoo animals!
