I’m leaving (very early) tomorrow morning to fly to San Diego for this year’s AAZK (American Association of Zoo Keepers) conference. The San Diego Zoo is hosting it this year. The conference lasts 5 days, and 3 days of that is an intense agenda of presentations by zookeepers, curators, conservationists and other renowned individuals in the zoo keeping field from around the world, along with several workshops spanning virtually any topic you could wish to learn about as an animal keeper.
I’ll make sure to come back with pictures to share, along with information about things that I learned. If you want to hear a little of what it’s like to be a presenter at the conference, you can click here to read about Kristen’s trip to Philadelphia last year where she did a presentation on our keeper blog!
