Zooming in on Zookeepers

To celebrate National Zoo Keeper Week, which runs from July 20–26, we’ve created a photo slideshow of Lincoln Park Zoo’s keepers keeping it real for the zoo’s animals!

National Zoo Keeper Week is an initiative of the American Association of Zoo Keepers, a nonprofit volunteer organization made up of professional zoo keepers and other interested persons dedicated to professional animal care and conservation.

Check out our photos of zookeepers performing a range of daily tasks, from diet prep for primates to operant-conditioning training for black rhinos!
