Rick Schwartz, San Diego Global Ambassador, gave an interesting talk to DMSB Rotary on August 23, 2019. A wild life expert and former Senior Zoo Keeper since 2000, Rick is also the co-host of San Diego Zoo Kids and Production Coordinator for the new Animal Planet series: “The Zoo San Diego”.
 
As Ambassador Rick has travelled around the world to far flung places such as Botswana, the Galapagos Islands, Australia and Kenya in the name of conservation. Schwartz shares his passion for conservation by making appearances in many well-known local and national television stations and shows around the country. As Senior Keeper at San Diego Zoo Global, Schwartz has been responsible for the care of many different species of birds, mammals and reptiles. He has also been deeply involved in innovative scientific programs seeking to protect and preserve endangered species that might otherwise be on the verge of extinction, such as the Great Northern White Rhino.
 
Schwartz continues to share his passion for animals as a part-time Instructor at Moorpark College’s Exotic Animal Training and Management Program. Drawing from his years of experience Schwartz teaches Wildlife Education to future generations of keepers and conservationists.
 
 
In the end DMSB Club Past President Charles Foster presented the speaker with the Joshua certificate that represents our club DMSB donating school supplies to schools in Malawi in the name of the speaker.
