You might want to visit a zoo or aquarium to help celebrate National Zoo Keeper Week, which runs from July 18-24, 2010.

From the National Capitol chapter of the The American Association of Zoo Keepers (AAZK):

AAZK's mission is to provide a resource and a forum of continuing education for the animal care professional and to support zoo and aquarium personnel in their roles as animal care givers, scientific researchers, public educators and conservationists; to promote zoos and aquariums as cultural establishments dedicated to the enrichment of human and natural resources; to foster the exchange of research materials, enrichment options and husbandry information through publications and conferences that will lead to a greater understanding of the needs and requirements of all animals.
