Welcome to Zoo Careers Exploration Day 2023! Join us on Earth Day this spring to explore how you can leverage your skills to create a more sustainable planet. You'll hear from a Career panel of zoo professionals and get to ask them lots of questions. We’ll take you behind the scenes to see up close what different zoo careers are like, and you’ll get some tips about educational paths and experiences that can help launch you into a zoo career. And of course…you’ll get to see some animals. Bring your questions for our zoo staff!
