In honor of National Zookeeper Week, we celebrate our local keepers at the NC Zoo


ASHEBORO, N.C. (WGHP) — The North Carolina Zoo is home to thousands of animals and just 80 zookeepers take care of them all. 

It’s tough work, but many still describe it as their dream job. 

This is National Zookeeper Week and Shannon Smith shows us in this Zoo Filez why their work is so important.

The North Carolina Zoo has been sharing stories about their keepers on Twitter and Instagram.

The Greensboro Science Center has been sharing the love for their keepers on Twitter and Instagram as well.
