Live Science is hosting a book giveaway!
"Confessions of an Accidental Zoo Curator" (Tenth Planet Press, 2017) is a new book by conservation educator and writer Annette Libeskind Berkovits, sharing her inside story of working for more than three decades at one of America's biggest and most famous zoos — the Bronx Zoo in New York City.
And on June 16, Live Science will be giving away a copy of "Confessions" to one lucky viewer. [Read an excerpt from Berkovits' book]
From launching the zoo's first sleepovers and summer camp programs, to building educational partnerships with schools in China, to transporting a hefty boa to a television appearance by wearing it under her coat and sneaking it into a taxi, Berkovits presents anecdotes that offer a unique perspective on the day-to-day routines at a large zoo, and share glimpses of how captive wildlife stirs public interest in wild populations, and brings awareness to the plight of threatened species.
