NEW for winter 2017 - a couples/ pairs Africa keeper for a day experience.
EXPERIENCE ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING CAREERS IN THE WORLD AND BECOME A ZOOKEEPER FOR THE DAY
Spend the day shadowing one of our highly trained animal carers helping with food preparation, feeding, cleaning out and anything else that might crop up.
As a keeper for the day the choice is yours – choose the animal you would most like to work with and we will assign you to the relevant section where you will work with a selection of animals throughout your day.
Zookeeper For The Day includes morning drink and snack, lunch, and afternoon drink as well as a memento of your day.
What animals will I work with
Gain an insight into care and meet our resident animals up close and personal as you learn about how we maintain the best standards of health and welfare. Learn about the diets helping keep them in tip-top condition as you help the keeper with the feeding regime and the varying personalities of the members of our resident “tower or crash”. Find out how we keep them entertained, interested and alert with enrichment programs which mimic their natural habitats (you may even get to help us create enrichment goodies!)
What hours will I work?
The day will start at 8.30am when following a safety briefing you will be met by your “keeper for the day” and will finish (animals permitting!).
You can make your experience extra special and join our keepers to hand feed one of the big cats.
Keepering” is a mucky job so be warned you will be expected to “muck in”, so wear suitable clothing and footwear. Safety Wellington Boots are available for loan however we must have your request and shoe size in advance!
£125 per person. Morning drink with snack, is included in the price and also includes a feeding wristband which enables you to have a go at hand feeding giraffes, penguins, lemurs in the afternoon.
Hand feed a big cat £25 is available as an add on - where you get the opportunity to join one of the carnivore keepers in one of the big cat houses to hand feed one of our big cats - an awesome experience!!
You will be sent a voucher for the experience and must contact the park to book your date. Dates fill very quickly especially weekends so the sooner you book the more chance there is of getting the date you want.
