Earlier this month, Suzi Rapp retired from Columbus Zoo and Aquarium after an incredible 39 years of service. Suzi has been a major supporter of CHAIRE since the beginning, through both serving on CHAIRE's advisory committee, and facilitating and supporting several research, education, and outreach projects with the Animal Programs Department at Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. Through her support, CHAIRE has been able to continue striving towards our mission of improving human-animal interactions and promoting positive welfare for all.
