From the News: National Zoo's longest-serving keeper bids farewell

Not much that I can add to this wonderful article.  It's a great testimony to the decades-long commitment that keepers have for their animals.  Few keepers are lucky enough to be able to spend so long working in a zoo - financial pressures, physical ailments, and family needs, to say nothing of burnout, take their toll.  That being said, it is remarkable and refreshing to see a keeper leave their job after almost forty years as in love with it as they were on their first day.

Happy retirement, Mr. Kessler!
