Nutrition Matters

San Diego Zoo Global was among the pioneers in having an animal nutritionist on staff. As Andrea Fidgett, director of Nutritional Services points out: “Nutrition isn’t everything, but without it, everything is nothing.” With a team of more than 25 professionals, our Nutritional Services department works closely with keepers, the veterinary team, curators, horticulturists, and many others to fill the furred, feathered, scaled, and smooth-covered stomachs.
