I tried something new!
The classes that I teach at my zoo job started this week. They're called Zookeepers in Training, and kids 9-12 years old learn what it takes to be a zookeeper. It's really fun, even for me. I get to hang out with the zookeepers and animals, too, and I usually learn a few new things each class. This time, our class got to help plan a new puzzle feeder enrichment item for the Capuchin monkeys. It involved tacking a few pieces of metal together with a welder. The kids each took turns with the helmet and watched the zookeeper weld. Then, it was my turn to watch, and I actually attempted some welding. Let's just say I need more practice!
Here's to trying something new! Have a great weekend friends!
