Junior Keeper for the day
Experience one of the most exciting careers in the world as you roll up your sleeves, wack on your wellies and spend the morning shadowing one of our highly trained and friendly animal carers.
You will start off your morning preparing food before getting the chance to feed the penguins their breakfast. After the penguins have eaten you will be going behind the scenes where you will meet, greet, and feed our animals and help clean out their enclosures (Hold your nose we're going in!) You will then get chance to help out with and watch some of our public feedings.
What will we do ?
You will accompany one of our keepers for a behind the scenes tour of the park getting up close and personal to our monkeys, giraffes,penguins.. and more.... Prepare to get mucky as you help muck out and prepare dinner for some of animals and get ready to ask lots of questions as you spend the morning with one of our animal experts.
