Do you have a teen wondering what it s like to work at a zoo? Check out the Career Lab program for high school students interested in participating in a career exploration at Denver Zoo. During this engaging program we will dive in and explore all aspects of animal care and will learn that it really does take a committed team of staff to make this happen.  Participants will practice hands on learning through enrichment creation (creating an item that enhances an animal s environment to encourage its natural behaviors), special behind the scenes tours, and an overview of the many different careers in zoo animal care and how to get there.
