Report of an Internship with the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden
I completed an internship within the Aviculture Department at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden. My primary responsibilities included the care of penguins and their exhibits, while simultaneously gaining experience in the care of various other species of birds. In addition to my zoo-keeping responsibilities, I was given the task of conducting a daily educational talk to the zoo visitors about penguins. I also participated in three research projects being conducted at the zoo. My involvement with these research projects, allowed me to critically evaluate the processes and procedures associated with conducting research in a zoo setting.
