Woodchip champ, Laura

Competitive keepers are keeping themselves entertained when it comes to the chore of laying woodchip.

The chipping, which is created from the 40-acre site’s trees, is used in many of the animal enclosures as an inexpensive floor covering.

But the ungulate keepers are seeing who can shovel the most, with senior keeper, Laura Robbins leading the way in shifting more than the rest of the team.

Laura said: “It’s good to do it for the girls; but the boys have a long way to go to beat me!”
