Congratulations, Sue Fahje, Customer Engagement and Superior Sales Efforts

Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium’s Director’s Award was established to honor zoo staff who completed projects in 2016 that had a notable positive impact on zoo operations and/or the guest experience; or showed significant costs savings or added tangible value to a process or park operation or animal husbandry in general. While certainly this positive impact relates to our grounds and living inhabitants of our zoo, it may surprise some to learn that it also extends to our stuffed animals – 170,374 of them, to be exact.
