Keeper Talks at the Columbus Zoo

Columbus Zoo Keeper Talks

The Columbus Zoo offers “Keeper Talks”, everyday 30 minutes throughout the day from March 18th through October 31st. Located throughout the zoo in the Heart of Africa, the Shores & Aquarium, the Congo Expedition, and more, each Keeper Talk focuses on a particular animal such as the lions, gorillas, penguins, and even the Discovery Reef Diver.

Sponsored by, Keeper talks allow Columbus Zoo visitors to hear straight from the Zoo Keepers’ mouths about how they care for the animals, how they train the animals, and how you can help protect their cousins in the wild.
