So, You Want to Be a Zookeeper…

It’s back to school time again and with thoughts of schooling inevitably, come thoughts of careers. In my opinion, one of the most rewarding career paths out there is the one I have chosen to take. Here at Busch Gardens my title is Senior Animal Care Specialist, but most people call me a “zookeeper.”

A Day in the Life of Kasi, Part 2

This is part 2 of "A Day in the Life of Kasi" the Baby Cheetah...

The afternoon for Kasi and Mtani is spent doing all kinds of fun things. The two of them make at least two appearances each day at Cheetah Run. The bigger cheetahs go inside for a break and the entire exhibit is given over to the unlikely pair. There is always lots of chasing and playing. Sometimes even an accidental plunge into the waterfall! Kasi enjoys playing with a wide array of different items.
