Jordan Patch Animal Adventure Family
Happy National Zookeepers week to the dedicated team of Animal Adventure!
Each day we will spotlight our team members.
Joel came to us after 11 years at the Bronx Zoo; having raised baby tigers and gorillas, rotating around the facility, and spending much time in the Jungle World Building.
Joel is in his second year with our team. His role as curator has him overseeing the entire animal collection and being a liaison and mentor for the other keepers.
April the Giraffe
Joel directly maintains our primate collection and bears. We have celebrated a number of successes (births) in Joel's areas this season; which we attribute to their great care!

We also credit Joel with bringing a great new emphasis on the animal enrichment component of our facility.
Today we celebrate him and his efforts!
Thank you Joel.
