Today I visited the only zoo on a college campus accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. The Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo is a lab course in an actual zoo on a college campus. This lab zoo not only teaches the students how to work with the animals in a zoo but also how to interact with the public in the zoo. The admission price to the zoo is $6 for adults and $5 for children and seniors over 60.
From a Wikipedia article:
Students spend 5 semesters learning about animal husbandry, breeding, nutrition, medical care, physiology, taxonomic relationships, conservation, enclosure construction, proper zoo sanitation, and other topics through classwork and actual work as keepers in the zoo.
