Petkeeping to Zookeeping: Past, Present and Future This year we'll be continuing our deep dive into all things animal, with some new twists and turns! From simple questions like what animals we like and why, we'll look at how petkeeping has evolved over time, and what draws humans to animals—and which ones! Are there safe, sustainable ways to bring nature into your home? You'll build a pint-size terrarium to keep (as well as explore examples of how to build fish tanks and vivariums). How do our decisions as humans impact the planet and animal life? What could we do differently? Is there a cost if things remain the same? We'll look at the Association of Zoos & Aquariums sustainable breeding programs: how do we ensure wildlife is here for generations to come? We'll get out into the environment as well with nature walks and hopefully a field trip or two to Missouri State Parks.
