american association of zoo keepers

As the largest combined children’s zoo and wildlife park on Long Island, we offer families a natural environment where they can learn about wildlife and animals through education and entertainment. Our dedicated staff and volunteers regularly attend training courses through a variety of organizations like San Diego Wildlife Academy, American Association of Zookeepers as well as the non-profit Zoological Association of America, of which Long Island Game Farm is a proud member.
