Akron Zoo Animal Ambassador Jenn Clark Spends Time with STVM Students in the Career Cafe

Mar 11, 2020

On Wednesday, March 11, Akron Zoo Animal Ambassador Jenn Clark and Forest the porcupine visited with a group of students in this month's Career Cafe speaker series. Over the last few months, STVM and the Akron Zoo have partnered to discuss career opportunities that are available at the Akron Zoo in a wide-range of fields. Jenn trains a variety of animals that are used for educational purposes. She brought in Forest the porcupine to use as an example of how a diverse assortment of animals can be trained that we might not realize. Those brave enough were even able to feed Forest at the end of the presentation!

Thank you to Jenn Clark, Forest and the Akron Zoo for spending time with our students and allowing for this unique partnership to continue!
