National Zookeeper Appreciation Week, July 19-25, 2020. Let us celebrate the hard work, dedication, and loyalty of those individuals that care for our animals, not only here at at the Montgomery Zoo, but also at Zoo’s around the world. Thank you for all that zookeepers do to provide for the animals of the world. As you visit the Zoo, please tell each of them how much you appreciate what they do to help the Montgomery Zoo animals and those in the wild.
National Zoo Keeper Week (NZKW). National Zoo Keeper Week focuses on the need to protect and preserve our wildlife and vanishing habitats via conservation messages created by their institutions. The animal keepers role as educators and wildlife ambassadors has become essential. During the third week of July each year, celebrate National Zoo Keeper Week; both keepers and animals deserve professional recognition.
Mission: The National Zoo Keeper Week Program will provide easily accessible tools and resources annually to members that promote the animal care profession and educate the general public, each year finding innovative and novel ways of doing so.
Vision: The National Zoo Keeper Week Program will connect with both the public and all animal care professionals in the name of raising awareness of what animal care are professionals do year-round, recognizing their hard work, conservation efforts, and passion.
Purpose: The National Zoo Keeper Week Program exists to provide members with the tools and capabilities to recognize their peers and promote the animal care profession during National Zoo Keeper Week and throughout the year.
