So this past Wednesday I was informed that I am once again a Senior Keeper at the Bronx Zoo! Originally I was promoted to Senior Keeper around 3 years ago, in 2007. At that time I was given the charge of Babirusa Barn in the Wild Asia section of the Bronx Zoo. In April of 2009, I along with 2 other Senior Keepers lost our titles due to the "economic crisis". As of September 9, 2010 I am a Senior Keeper again, this time presented with the charge of Tiger Mountain and Bear Dens. I am now responsible for Amur Tigers, Malayan Tigers, Snow Leopards, Amur Leopards, Grizzly and Brown Bears, Polar Bear, Red Pandas and two White Eared Pheasants. A lot of very cool animals in my opinion. Things are getting crazy but it should all be worth it!!
