National Zookeeper Week at the Capron Park Zoo
Alayna began at the zoo March 2014. A Seekonk native, Alayna studied Zoo Keeping Technology at the Pikes Peak Community College in Colorado Springs. She also works as our Vet assistant and pursuing her technician certification through Penn Foster. "I love coming to the zoo everyday and making sure the animals are as healthy and happy as possible". Her favorite animals here are our Fennec Fox and Kangaroo, Oliver. Alayna is more than happy to answer your questions- the next time you see her, give her a wave!
Siobhan is also one of the zoo's Facebook admins. "We (zoo keepers) forget that the general public doesn't always get to see what's everyday life for us. I'm happy to share that with them". You'll be sure to see her on our Lemur islands, as they are her favorite critters.
She has now brought her skills to Capron, where she works with Lacey, our Amur Leopard daily.
A North Attleboro native, Casey has been visiting the zoo since she was a little girl. She discovered her true love for animals after a high school project.
In 2010, Casey graduated from the University of Connecticut with her BA in Animal Science. She accepted a position at the International Exotic Animal Sanctuary in Texas working with Bears and Big Cats. She moved back home to then take two internship positions at Capron Park to recently celebrating her 3rd anniversary, as a Zoo Keeper. Casey can be seen working our Bear & Lion routine, with Commando the Alpaca and Kaela the Lioness being her favorite critters! Casey also assists with the Zoo's enrichment program; "I like to watch the animals be interactive and reinforce their natural behaviors with something I've created. "
