What is a day’s work for Cait Flanagan, Animal Care Technician at LCF’s Myakka City Lemur Reserve?
A former student of one of LCF’s field training programs, she returned in 2012 to be a teacher assistant for the course. Right after the field school she began the Reserve’s husbandry internship and after two months joined the staff as Animal Care Specialist.
Previously an intern for Zoo Atlanta, she cared for the zoo’s education program animals and conducted public encounters. She has a degree in anthropology with a focus on primatology from the University of West Georgia, where she also contributed to primate cognitive research projects.
