Zoo InternQuest is a seven-week career exploration program for San Diego County high school juniors and seniors. Students have the unique opportunity to meet professionals working for the San Diego Zoo, Safari Park, and Institute for Conservation Research, learn about their jobs, and then blog about their experience online. Follow their adventures here on the Zoo’s website!
This week we met with Torrey Pillsbury, Senior Keeper at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. Working out in the field, Ms. Pillsbury takes care of a myriad of animals from giraffes and rhinos, to various hoof stock species. She allowed us to go out with her to observe what her job requires on a daily basis. It was an amazing experience not only because of the new knowledge we learned, but also because of the encounters we had that just made us fall in love with these incredible animals even more. We all had a blast!
