STEVE BURNS has been the Executive Director of the Friends of Zoo Boise for the last 18 years and the Director of Zoo Boise for the last 15. Before Zoo Boise, he worked at The Nature Conservancy in Washington, DC. He is now the Chairman of the Board of the Association of Zoos and Aquarium, a national membership organization that is the accrediting body of the country's major zoos and aquariums. Earlier this month, he gave the keynote speech for this laudable organization in Dubai. Burns led a radical shift while steering Zoo Boise that has changed the nature of conservation for zoos across the US and for the far-flung wildlife havens that remain in the modern world.
