Wow... so all of that was very depressing. Moving on from May... it's June, and that means it's Zoo and Aquarium Month! Which would make a lot more sense if National Zookeeper Week was in June, but oh well. It's been a hard month for the zoo community, especially all those affected by the tragedy at Cincinnati Zoo, but we're a resilient bunch. I've heard a lot of positive support for us around the country, and I know that we'll continue to move forward. In the meantime, I hope that everyone has a chance to remember why they joined the most awesome of professions and never has cause to regret it.
Happy Zoo and Aquarium Month!
