Along with birthday parties, formal dinners and wedding celebrations, zoo staff are kept busy with animal presentations and facilitating summer and day programs such as Junior Zookeeper and Zooniversity. This dual focus of conservation and education underlies one of the zoo’s founding principles found in the words of Baba Dioum: “In the end, we will conserve only what we love, we will love only what we understand, we will understand only what we are taught.” [AWM] More information on zoo programming and exhibits can be found at www.redriverzoo.org
