Photo of the Week: July 25, 2014

To cap off the American Association of Zoo Keepers’ National Zoo Keeper Week, our Photo of the Week features two Lincoln Park Zoo keepers.

Lincoln Park Zoo keeper Allycia Darst and Jill Dignan train harbor seals at the Kovler Sea Lion Pool

Zoo keepers Allycia Darst (foreground) and Jill Dignan demonstrate training techniques with harbor seals at the Kovler Sea Lion Pool. Operant conditioning sessions like these let the zoo’s animals take part in their own care.

Thanks for your daily contributions to animal care and conservation, zoo keepers!
