Video Job Profile: Sea Lion Trainer

For my Picture Story & Photo Essay class, we had to do a video job profile on a job of our choosing.  I thought it would be fun to do it on a sea lion trainer at the Saint Louis Zoo.

I worked at the Zoo for 4 summers as a tour guide on the back of the train.  However, some days I was assigned to work at the Sea Lion Show.  I was always entertained by it and I think I always will be.  If you asked me as a kid what my favorite animals were, I probably would have had the sea lion on that list.  It is pretty hard not to laugh at a sea lion.

A big thanks to Angela and Kyle at the Sea Lion Show who took time out of their busy day to help me out with this.  If this whole journalism thing fails, I may just try to steal their jobs…
