Zahra the zoo keeper

Hello children and teachers. Welcome to City Zoo. My name is Zahra and I am the zookeeper. I understand you want to know what a zookeeper does each day. To be a zookeeper you need to love animals and have a passion for their welfare and protection. It is a wonderful job. I have a strict routine, but no two days are ever the same as you can never tell what the animals are going to get up to.
