While many people enjoy a day at the zoo to look at animals and take in the sites, there are the people behind the scenes to make sure the animals and zoo itself are being maintained.
Zookeepers are the eyes and ears of all the animals at the zoo. In an effort to show appreciation for all their hard work, the Miller Park Zoo will be hosting their Zoo Keeper Olympics event.
Jay Tetzloff is the Director of the Miller Park Zoo, as he explains while patrons can enjoy different activities and contests, there will be a more intense competition between other workers at the zoo.
It was the zookeepers who won the event last year, as the ZooKeeper Olympics will take place this Saturday from 12-3 p.m. at the Miller Park Zoo.
