Elaina, one of our newest keepers, has been learning the daily routine of Explore the Wild. The daily routine is summed up as checking on animals, feeding, cleaning and enriching. At the end of the day, we have stuff that needs to get put away such as the bowls for lemurs. Elaina decided that she would carry everything that we needed put away at the same time to save time.
Enthusiasm is a great trait to have as a keeper and this picture displays this well. But, if you are not careful you may get too much to carry and results may vary…
The small container, with the light blue lid, is dangerously teetering off the edge of our recycle container. This small container is filled with wolf food. Elaina tried to get everything put away at once and ALMOST dropped the wolf food. Luck was on her side. I think even she thought it was going to fall.
All of the keepers have had their share of items that we have accidentally dropped but I don’t think any of us have been this lucky.
