Are you of interest in Alameda Park Zoo’s Jr Zookeeper Program?
As a junior zookeeper you will go behind the scenes and learn about animal behavior, diet, environment and maintenance in the exhibits. In addition to this experience you will learn about the animals we will be interacting with on a visual, behavioral and emotional level.
As you know we have a long history with the City of Alamogordo educating and interacting with our youth and animals at our community Zoo. As a junior zookeeper you will get dirty and be tired when you return home as well as full of environmental and educational enrichment with the animals.
Participants will learn how to track and recognize the animal tracks and maintenance and care of our animals.
Providing wonderful animal experiences since 1898, come join and kick start your Zookeeper or wildlife manager career into motion. Come learn with us!
