Many people don't realize that everyday at the zoo we have many talks by zookeepers, detailing the natural histories and conservation status of the different animal species at the zoo. On any given day you might be treated to everything from learning about Malayan tapirs to seeing a flight demonstration by the zoo's raptors. The keepers detail a wide array of info during their presentations, from the diets of the animals in their care to what their populations are in the wild.
Make sure to check out the schedule of daily activities online, or check the information kiosk at each zoo entrance on your next visit. (Photo by Ryan Hawk)
