    Illustrated handbook on zookeeping

    We need your help!
    The ICZ committee is presently seeking YOUR assistance for a very exciting project. It is an illustrated handbook on zookeeping which will be produced in a number of selected chapters. The aim is to provide instruction for these keepers who are unable to read or source educational material in their own language.
    This project aims to provide keepers with a simple guide to improve animal husbandry and keeper safety via the use of pictograms. To create these we need people from zoos and wildlife parks around the world to send us sequential shots of keepers undertaking their daily tasks. The first one we will be concentrating on is feeding. The photos will only be used in the development of the pictograms and not for any other purpose. It doesn´t matter how good or poor your facilities are the main idea is to see how the actual tasks are being done.
