Animal Keepers' Forum - Online!

Animal Keepers' Forum is now available online!  Issues are being digitized and described thanks to AAZK & the Biodiversity Heritage Library's Expanding Access to Biodiversity Literature project.  


The most recent two years will be embargoed but will be made available on a rolling window.  This great resource is available to anyone and accessible from anywhere.  Search tips are available online, and SDZG Library team members are also happy to help.

Fact Sheet Updates

Our new California Condor (Gymnogyps californianus) and Galapagos Giant Tortoises (Chelonoidis spp.) 
facts sheets are now available.  

The San Diego Zoo received its first tortoises in 1928; some of these original tortoises still live at the Zoo today!  For years, the San Diego Zoo had the only breeding colony in zoos, worldwide.

In 1983, the San Diego Zoo became the first facility in the world to hatch a California Condor in captivity. Although a major conservation success story, wild populations still require intensive management; lead poisoning and ingestion of trash are most serious threats.

Many thanks to our expert reviewers and contributors!

Book of the Month

book cover

Remarkable Women of San Diego : Pioneers, Visionaries and Innovators


By Hanna S. Cohen and Gloria G. Harris (2016)

San Diego enjoys a diverse legacy of formidable female leaders. Ellen Browning Scripps financed and established the groundbreaking Scripps Oceanography Institute. In 1927, Belle Benchley became the nation’s first female zoo director and for nearly thirty years pioneered new forms of exhibition and developed the world-class San Diego Zoo. Guatemalan activist and advocate Luisa Moreno established the United Fish Cannery Workers Union to protect the rights of workers during World War II. Ruth Alexander set new altitude records for light planes at the peak of the city’s aviation boom. Bertha Pendleton became the first female and first African American San Diego school superintendent in 1993. Authors Hannah Cohen and Gloria Harris document these and many more stories of extraordinary local women.  —Publisher.
