San Antonio Zoo

Zookeeper Intern

May - July 2018 • San Antonio, TX

What I liked

I loved the ability to be able to help and assist the keepers with their everyday work. They tried to give us as much hands on experience as they could and allow us to learn and fulfill new tasks each day. I was able to help in various locations in my department depending on the need. I enjoyed the experience and loved feeling so welcome and appreciated.

What I wish was different


Try your best. These keepers work hard every day to provide a quality life for the animals and enjoy their job every second. It is hard work, but knowing that you are helping the keepers take care of the animals as much as you can is very rewarding. Just work hard and be determined.
