I meet some amazing Zookeepers at the Toronto Zoo every time I interview them for an episode on this podcast. I always ask the Zookeepers to share stories about the animals they have worked with over the course of their careers. It’s the best part of my day to hear how the various personalities of the animals can make a Zookeeper’s day! Unfortunately, we can’t fit every story into each of the podcast episodes; however, I am pleased to tell you that we included some of the best stories from the careers of three Zookeepers at the Toronto Zoo: Ali Vella-Irving, Brent Huffman, and Aly Pidgen over a three-part series.
This podcast features Aly Pidgen, who decided to take a different approach to Zookeeper Diaries and hand out awards for different parts of her career. Check out some of her amazing stories!
