Thank you, Vegas Vibin’, for featuring the Lion Habitat Ranch in Henderson’s Best Things to Do [updated 2024]
“What impressed me the most about Lion Habitat Ranch inc was the educational encounters available. The knowledgeable guides provided fascinating insights into the behavior and conservation efforts of these incredible animals. It was a refreshing reminder of the importance of protecting these endangered species.” -Sarah Sinclair
Thank you, Channel 3 Las Vegas, for highlighting our 5th Annual Boo at the Zoo event !
Last year during #nationalzookeeperweek Columbian Park Zoo highlighted a way to help zookeeper mental health when coming to visit. We would like to reshare this specific message this year because not only does it help our zookeepers out a lot, but it can also help make for a better visit.
“Tip: Respect the Barriers
Did you know zookeepers frequently suffer from something called “lock anxiety?” It’s the fear of unintentionally leaving a lock, gate, or door unsecured – which at a zoo could lead to a life-threatening situation for coworkers, animals or even the general public. Keepers carry huge public safety responsibilities on top of the animal care burden. To add to the stress, a keeper’s day also involves intercepting visitors as they reach through fences, stand on railings, step over chains, open staff-only doors and try to sneak into off-public areas (and we know y’all know better!)
Keeping everyone safe is a zookeepers #1 priority. Help them help you by staying on pathways and never, ever crossing safety barriers.” Shared originally by @ColumbianParkZoo
Happy #nationalwilfelifeday from our keepers and animal family! Our keepers talk about their favorite animals and their favorite way to help #wildlife We’ve also included a little #blooperreel at the end #DidYouKnow that there are a lot of holidays throughout the year highlighting wildlife? World Lion Day, World Giraffe Day, World Wildlife Day, and National Wildlife Day (celebrated twice a year on it’s own on both February 22nd and September 4th), as well as many more days to shine a spotlight on the amazing wildlife found around the world! There are a lot of dates to track Like Keeper Dana said, for us, National Wildlife Day is everyday!
