I love hearing keeper stories. Do you ever talk about AAZK stories or tips and tricks? We are growing our chapter and I think doing a great job but we are always learning how to become better!

Podcast cover
Read more

I speak with Jordan Veasley, a zookeeper at the Woodland Park Zoo. I came across Jordan when one of his youtube videos was retweeted onto my twitter timeline. This episode starts with a discussion about this video. We chat about a specific incident that happened to him while working as a keeper, why there aren’t more African American zookeepers and how Jordan hopes to help make this career colorblind.

We also talk about Jordan’s journey to his current role and what the future holds for him. Please follow him on Instagram and check out everything he does.

Rank #10: Episode 20 – Josh Courteau

I speak with Josh Courteau, Training manager and LearnZims Teaching Partnership Coordinator at Species 360. We talk about the importance of ZIMS (Zoological Information Management System) to the zoo industry and how they have been helping zoos behind the scenes since 1974. This isn’t the kind of guest we normally have on this show as he doesn’t work directly with animals, but I thought it would be great to have on someone who works behind the scenes in the zoo industry. If you love animals and technology this might be the kind of job you are looking for.

Some of the stats that Josh threw out were slightly off and he wanted me to make sure you guys got the correct numbers so here they are:

~1,100 zoos and aquariums in over 93 countries managing >10,000,000 animals current and historic representing 22,000 species. Every day, 15,000 keepers, curators, vets have access to ~82,000,000 medical records and ~222,000,000 husbandry records. More on ZIMS, our Teaching Partnerships and more: http://training.species360.org/LearnZIMS/
