I'm extremely excited to be working at the Museum since October 2010. My favorite part of this job- besides working with the animals- is listening to all of the Keeper stories, I hear a new one each day. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, belly dancing, and vegan cooking.
I work Sunday through Thursday. I can be found mostly behind the scenes or training the Ring Tail Lemurs.

Lemur Tracking Drill

May 15th, 2013

We recently had a Lemur Tracking Drill. Sherry informed us that two “lemurs” were hidden around campus and we had an hour to find them. Off we went…

Me, Sarah, Kent, and Aaron begin Lemur tracking

Sarah picking up a strong signal behind the Donkey/Goat yard

Aaron went into the woods between alpaca and pigs to see what he could pick up on his tracker

Duck was curious about Aaron in the woods

As was Max

We then decided to go out to the parking lot since our signal was pointing us in that direction.

Quickly there after,  we found the first lemur in a tree.

After feeling successful about finding the first lemur so quickly we decided to split up at the boardwalk. Sarah and I headed to Explore the Wild and Aaron and Kent headed to Catch the Wind. Shortly there after,  the guys radioed us to meet them at the Into the Mist exhibit. Kent had spotted the second lemur on top of an umbrella!

With both lemurs found we headed back to the building

Successful Tracking
