ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - The  St. Louis Zoo is one of the jewels of this city, and without the hard work and dedication of over 100 zookeepers, it  would not be as spectacular.

This week is National Zookeeper Week and Senior Zookeeper Erin Tully stops by to tells us about a typical day in the field.

She also shares how they plan to celebrate all week long.
