Speaker: Ronald L. Fricke Jr.
Deputy Director for Animals, Education and Conservation Ron will review these and other recent zoo projects. A graduate of Carnegie Mellon University, Ron spent eight years as a teacher and developed science curriculum that incorporated live animals into the classroom setting. In 1991 Ron moved to the field of informal science education becoming an exhibit/program coordinator at the Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh. In 1994 Ron joined the Philadelphia Zoo's education department, and spent more than twelve years in several positions including Vice President of Education and as a media spokesperson for the Zoo. He shared the Zoo's conservation message on many local and national radio and television shows such as "Good Morning America," "Good Day Philadelphia" and "Wild Moments". Ron went on to become the Philadelphia Zoo's Vice President of Guest Relations and directed the day to day operations of the guest experience at the Zoo. In 2007, Ron was selected to become the Toledo Zoo's Deputy Director for Animals, Education and Conservation, the position that he currently holds. Ron is responsible for the oversight of the animal, animal health, animal behavior, education and conservation departments at the Zoo, and works closely with other departments as the Zoo strives to reach its mission of "Inspiring others to join us in caring for animals and conserving the natural world."

It's probably about 1 or 2 years old, according to Ron Fricke, vice president of education at the Philadelphia Zoo. However, the first alligator is not old enough to be a parent of the second, Fricke said.

The gator is almost definitely an abandoned pet, said Ron Fricke, vice president for education at the Philadelphia Zoo.It could not have survived the winter unless it found somewhere warm to stay, he said.Although gators are often sold when they're less than a foot long, they grow fast, adding a foot or so a year, and often get tossed out when they grow to Cecil's length, Fricke said. "At that size they're starting to get very hard for people to handle," he said.Alligators aren't picky, according to Fricke. "They'll eat just about anything small enough for them to capture and either swallow whole or tear to pieces," he said.But he added that a cat would probably be about the biggest thing the alligator could handle.
