Michael Clifford, Zoo Science Graduate

As a senior in the zoo science program, Michael Clifford worked with conservation teams in South Africa to see first-hand how they preserve territories, helped with anti-poaching operations, and had the opportunity to work with animals that had never before seen people.

“It was amazing. I got to work with a number of zoos in South Africa. I had the privilege of learning how African zoos are operated. I got to learn from them as well as share my knowledge of zoos and animal husbandry that I learned from my experiences in U.S. zoos and at Friends University.”
