If you haven't noticed lately, the Roar Report is getting more interesting by the day and we're adding new bloggers all the time. The newest, one of the Zoo's Animal Care Managers, will be giving you the inside scoop on animals and exhibits and will try to answer any questions you might have for him. He'll take it from here....Hello everyone. Just a quick introduction and then I will tell you what this blog will be about. My name is Tad (AKA, Tad the Primate Guy) I am an Animal Care Manager (ACM) here at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. ACMs (there are four of us) supervise the Animal Keeper staff and are the link between Animal Keepers and other Animal Care staff (Veterinary Care, Animal Curators, Conservation & Science, as well as other Zoo departments such as Maintenance, Education, Guest Services, etc.) We're involved in most every aspect of the daily workings within the Animal Care department.
That is what this blog will be about. I'll give you more insight into what is involved with caring for the animals you come to the Zoo to see. I have worked here as Keeper, Lead Keeper and Manager, and I can give you a unique and accurate view of Animal Care. I hope you will enjoy my stories and will have lots of great questions for me. Oh, even though my blog name (the Primate Guy) gives away my main interest in monkeys, apes and prosimians, I have worked with many types of animals, so feel free to ask about any animal you want. If I don’t know something, I can find someone here who does.
Talk to you soon.
