Zookeeper Intern

May 2019 - June 2019 Pittsburgh, PA
“The work was nothing too extreme or difficult. I worked in Kid's Kingdom, which gave me an opportunity to work with a variety of animals. You are given space to do the work yourself without someone watching over your back making sure you are doing it correctly. There is so much to learn about animal care and the animals themselves. You can develop a relationship with the animals as well as discover each animal's own personality. ”
