Micke Grove Zoo curator Avanti Mallapur explains zoo life

Avanti Mallapur began to learn about wildlife when she was a little girl. Since her mother was an avid reader and the family loved animals, there were always books to read. Originally from India, Mallapur read books about wildlife as well as magazines such as India’s version of National Geographic. After several visits as a child to the zoo, she became fascinated by animal behaviors and how they survive in captivity. Mallapur studied animal behavior in college and then worked in a zoo in Dallas, Texas. For two and a half years, she has been the zoo curator for Micke Grove Zoo. Mallapur took some time on a recent afternoon to talk about the zoo and her role in it. Comments (0)
