Calahan Strickland (2009 pledge class) spent the first month of her summer interning at the Tulsa Zoo Living Museum. She had the chance to get up close and personal with all different types of animals including giraffes, grizzly bears, elephants, rhinos, penguins, birds of prey, lions, tigers, chimps and many more! Yikes! Although she enjoyed working with primates the most, she also worked in aquariums and the reptile and large carnivore departments. To the left is a picture of her in front of the chimpanzee training facility! Calahan says her dream job for the future would be to work as a great ape trainer. Sounds like this amazing summer opportunity has inspired her! She is already looking forward to a more intense internship learning to train great apes for next summer.
