Join us to explore the many careers available at zoos and other animal-focused organizations. Meet the people responsible for running the zoo, including members of the animal care team, and perform some of their daily responsibilities and chores. We will meet the veterinarian staff & zookeepers, clean an exhibit, create animal diets, conduct DNA extraction, learn how genetics plays a role captive breeding, and explore wildlife conservation projects funded by the Zoo Boise community
