Edmonton Valley Zoo Animal Caregivers
The Edmonton Valley Zoo care team all have one thing in common — a love for animals. They care for more than 350 animals at the Edmonton Valley Zoo on a daily basis.
The team celebrated the opening of a new on-site hospital last fall. Improvements include a surgery, laboratory, quarantine area and space for animals needing longer-term care. The new facility, along with advanced medical equipment, will allow the zoo's veterinarian, animal health technologists and zookeepers to more effectively and efficiently care for the animals, including snow leopards, red pandas, zebras, and Siberian tigers.
Zookeepers also perform important jobs, ensuring the animals are safe and healthy on a daily basis. They prepare appropriate meals for the animals, clean animal enclosures, create enrichment activities, and assist the veterinary team in the care of all the Edmonton Valley Zoo animals.
