Zookeepers are a type of staff member that can be hired in Zoo Palace. They are possibly the most important staff member in the entire game. It is their job to not only care for the animals in your zoo, but also clean and maintain exhibits (by doing things such as cleaning animal poop). Zookeepers are responsible for taking care of all animals in your zoo, including aquatic and extinct animals. Also, since Zoo Palace has Keeper Mode, you no longer have to hire zookeepers, as you can do everything a zookeeper can do. However, it's usually easier to hire zookeepers than run around caring for all of your animals in Keeper Mode (depending on how large your zoo is). The player plays as a zookeeper.
