Keeper for a Day at the Kansas City Zoo

Keeper for a Day at the Kansas City Zoo

Playing with cute, cuddly, sometimes wild animals is one of those dream jobs for kids on par with astronauts, firefighters, and ballerinas. Yet, few know what zookeeping actually entails. We recently participated in the Kansas City Zoo’s Keeper for a Day program (Mini program for ages 7-12 and Junior program for ages 13-17, and an adult program for 18+) and it was truly an outstanding educational experience. After our day, our respect for the zoo and the workers there was even greater. The love and care the animals receive is truly top-notch and the job is more than we imagined.
