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.
In November 2019, we again accepted applications from thousands of kids who wanted to become the next Sydney Zoo Mini Zookeeper. Two lucky applicants were chosen and joined the Sydney Zoo family.
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!
