In 2017 San Diego Zoo Global lost one of its’ most beloved zookeepers, Ken Morgan.
Ken Morgan worked for the Herpetology Department for many years and helped inspire so many keepers and guests with his intelligence, humor, friendship but most of all his smile. He loved all of the people and animals he worked with, but his true passion was the Komodo Dragon. He was dedicated to the animals under his care and even traveled to Komodo several times to work with locals on Komodo Conservation.
AAZK San Diego has decided to raise money in his honor and donate it to the Komodo Dragon Species Survival Plan (SSP). This Komodo SSP fund remains a viable resource to continue this valuable conservation work.
