Take care of the little critters who need us:

Time to get supplies! Taking care of a large group of native Virginia critters takes lots of shopping and cleaning. Each day we need to clean and feed and take care of the critters. This involves many activities, including trips to wholesale warehouses, grocery stores, or local feed stores.  In addition to gathering all those food supplies and goods, many hours are spent cleaning the areas where the animals stay. One of my favorite quotes from a keeper at a another facility : ” Our quality of care is their quality of life” ( Meryle Nelson, keeper, Brookfield Zoo)
