|The Elmwood Park Zoo chapter supports this mission by encouraging its keepers and other local zookeepers to be active members of AAZK and foster their professional development. AAZK members are constantly on the lookout for new practices and ideas that make them better keepers and stewards of the natural world. Through excellent care, enrichment, and training practices AAZK members endeavor to provide healthier, happier and more comfortable lives for Elmwood Park Zoo animals. They also focus on education and fundraising initiatives for conservation programs that aim to inspire people to sustain wild ecosystems.
|AAZK is not just for keepers! It's for anyone interested in the care of animals, captive or wild. If you are interested in becoming a member or would like to know more about the Chapter, please contact them via email.
