This Weeks Books of Interest to the Zoo Professional
Books of Interest
This is a weekly updated page which to draw Zoo Professionals attention to books of interest with particular emphasis on new books.
During my zoo career I built up an extensive library of zoo related material. Sadly I had to part with all of these when I sold all my worldly possessions to go travelling but I still keep an active eye and interest in anything new.
Further to my own books, in twenty years at the Welsh Mountain Zoo, I put together a library of zoo books that just could not be found elsewhere in the UK. All of this funded my the keeping staff through the 'tea fund'.
Although it is very important that people working within zoos gain as much practical experience as possible it is equally important that they learn from the experience of others. Whereas a lot of this may be obtained via word of mouth it will be well written books which are remembered.
