Quick & Dirty Ep: 18

Time for more advice! For whatever reason, you guys keep asking for our advice when in actuality, we're just little slug women doing our best. TLDL: We love our volunteers and you should too, end of story. Also, name your animals, because why the heck not?


This week, we discuss:

- Our experiences with volunteers, our thoughts on their role in the zoo, and advice on how not to be a dirtbag to the people donating their time to help out the zoo

- The pros vs cons of naming zoo animals and sharing those names with the public - is it an effective means of making personal connections or does it encourage exotic pet ownership?

80: Sumatran Rhino

Sumatran Rhinos are small, hairy, and vocal. We can relate. But let's get depressing, these things are dying, and it's all our fault.

We answer a QND we have avoided for 10 months. Sorry Aimee, we love you tho.


We answer:

  • If we don't support the circus, are zoos the next to go?

Send in your thoughts if you agree/disagree! We would love to hear it. But be nice, k thanks.
