World Class Animal Husbandry?
How many Keepers do we need? And how many animals can a Keeper properly handle? This frequent conversation appears regularly in animal centric organizations. While many sources will suggest a ratio, there is no industry accepted standard, which creates variation across organizations. The short answer is that it depends on your organizations culture, expectations, services, and a variety of other big picture ideas. The reality is that your ratio is unique to your organization. We can help you in determining your parameters and creating your own standard. This also creates an opportunity for your organization to educate others, which eventually reduces variation across the industry. Let us help you create an animal husbandry standard unique to your organization.
