Dear Carman Swatek,

I am writing to express my keen interest in the Animal Keeper position at San Diego Zoo Global. With five years of dedicated experience at the Wildlife Conservation Society, I have honed my skills in animal care, behavioral observation, and habitat maintenance, and I am now eager to bring my passion and expertise to your esteemed team.

At the Wildlife Conservation Society, I was entrusted with the care of a diverse range of species, from small mammals to large carnivores. My daily responsibilities included preparing specialized diets, administering medications, and creating enrichment activities to promote natural behaviors and mental stimulation. I have also been actively involved in record-keeping, tracking the health and well-being of the animals under my care with meticulous attention to detail.

One of my most rewarding experiences was participating in a collaborative breeding program aimed at the conservation of an endangered species. This role demanded not only a deep understanding of animal husbandry but also the ability to work seamlessly with a multidisciplinary team of veterinarians, researchers, and fellow keepers. It is this kind of collaborative and impactful work that excites me about the opportunity at San Diego Zoo Global.

I am particularly impressed by San Diego Zoo Global's commitment to conservation and education, and I am enthusiastic about the possibility of contributing to your mission. I am confident that my proactive approach to animal welfare and my ability to engage with zoo guests to promote conservation awareness will make a valuable addition to your team.

Thank you for considering my application. I am looking forward to the opportunity to discuss how my background, skills, and enthusiasms will be in perfect alignment with the needs of San Diego Zoo Global.

Warm regards,

Shoshannah Truly
