Meet Sydney Zoo's Mini Zookeeper Harrison

Name: Harrison

Age: 11

Hi, I’m Harrison and I’m so excited to be a Sydney Zoo Mini Zookeeper. I love animals big and small and I want to share that with the world. I can’t wait to start working with the animals at Sydney Zoo and meeting all the families that visit.

I want to learn more about all the animals at Sydney Zoo and how to care for them, but my favourite animal is the Gorilla. They are so big and strong and the largest living primate in the world, I would love to meet a Gorilla at Sydney Zoo one day.

I have a dog named Yuki, she is a 4 year old Japanese Spitz and likes to sleep on the floor next to my bed. I also have a pet blue tongued lizard that lives under a rock in my backyard, he comes out to eat and sunbake.

My dream career is to work in a Gorilla sanctuary to protect Gorillas and other primates in the wild and save their natural habitat.

I’m so excited to see Sydney Zoo finished and all the animals in their new homes. I live close by and would love to visit with my family and friends and introduce them to all the amazing animals, especially the Gorillas and other primates.
