How Do We Love These Animals? Let Us Count the Ways

Talk to our aquarists and trainers about any one of the animals in their care, and you’ll see their passion. In their eyes, every animal at Shedd, large and small, iconic and obscure, is absolutely amazing and deserving of the best possible care. Despite our caregivers’ avowed lack of favoritism, however, some animals find a special place in their hearts because, as Michelle Sattler notes, people’s personal relationships with animals are unique. Here are four stories that prove it.
