Julie Yarrington

Julie Yarrington has been a zookeeper at the Como Zoo in Saint Paul, Minnesota for the past seven years. Her day consists of taking care of California sea lions, harbor seals, tufted puffins, African penguins, and polar bears. Each day the animals receive daily training sessions that include many different behaviors to better care for them, even brushing their teeth. She also gives weekly talks to the one million guests that come through the door each year to try and inspire them to make an impact on reducing their carbon footprint.
