SeaWorld San Diego celebrated National Zoo Keeper Week with an interactive display at the park’s new Rescue Plaza near Shamu Stadium. Park guests had the chance to chat with keepers from the bird and mammal departments, dress up like a zoo keeper, and learn about what SeaWorld does to care for animals, both in the park’s collection and as part of the rescue program.
SeaWorld is a member of the American Association of Zoo Keepers, which began in 1967 in San Diego. AAZK’s mission is to provide a resource and a forum of continuing education for animal care professionals and to promote zoos and aquariums as cultural establishments dedicated to the enrichment of human and natural resources.
