Sydney Zoo Mini Zookeepers

In October 2018, Sydney Zoo announced its search for Mini Zookeepers. The competition received over 1000 entries from passionate, animal-loving kids from all around Australia.

Twelve lucky Mini Zookeepers were selected to experience a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play a starring role in the opening of a brand new zoo, travelling around the world to meet the new animal residents and bring them home to Western Sydney.

All of our Mini Zookeepers have a passion for creatures big and small, and are wildly enthusiastic about learning. Meet the official Sydney Zoo Mini Zookeepers below.

We'll keep you up to date on the adventures of our Mini Zookeepers throughout the year!

The 2019 search for new Sydney Zoo Mini Zookeepers has now closed.

We have now closed entries for this competition and announced the winners. Stay tuned for more chances to WIN in future.
