I worked closely with the Zoo Rangers as a Public Safety Personnel.
Public Safety staff have a variety of duties at the St. Louis Zoo. The following is a list:
Collaborate with the Zoo Rangers to assist with any type of animal, visitor or weather emergency.
Assist the Rangers with zoo closing procedures - clearing grounds and securing the Special Events Building which includes making sure all theaters, offices and classrooms were unoccupied and locked.
Special assignments in the butterfly house and penguin exhibit to enhance visitors’ experience and keep the animals safe; also patrol visitors’ parking lot for the safety of the zoo guests and their vehicles.
Assignments to private night events, wedding receptions, special zoo events and private parties to insure the safety of the guests and zoo animals.
When you did not have an assignment you walked the zoo and helped visitors with questions, directions and small injuries.
I enjoyed walking the zoo and seeing the animals everyday.
