Jacob Zlait has recently retired after working diligently and devotedly in the Zoological Garden for many years.

In celebration of his retirement the Zoological Garden staff took a trip to Jerusalem, which included a tour of the Gazelle Valley and a visit to the Jerusalem bird observatory.
Two new animal keepers have joined our staff: Juan Velasquez, who is in charge of the Garden's visibility and assists in technical needs; and Lior Twig, who has replaced Jacob in taking care of the predators and in other tasks.
