Horticulturist - Working in Zoos and Sanctuaries

This position is not often associated with zoos or fauna sanctuaries. However, horticulturists and landscape gardeners play an important role in many zoos and fauna sanctuaries. As the layout and design of sanctuaries change, zoos are trying to create a more naturalistic experience for visitors. This means the presence of gardens and other plantings around the zoo environment. Full time horticulturists are required to maintain these gardens.
