Become a Mini Zookeeper for a day!

For an animal-loving child, or a kid who’d love to be a zookeeper one day, there’s really no better experience than our Mini Zookeeper for a Day program. This program teaches children what it takes to become a zookeeper and provides an opportunity to get hands-on experience feeding and caring for a range of different animals.

Our mini zookeepers will learn cool facts and important information about animal conservation. They’ll learn about animal training and what they can do in their own lives to protect rare and endangered animal species. They'll even get the chance to get creative and make something that will enrich the lives of our beautiful animals.

The Mini Zookeeper For a Day program is a great activity to keep the kids busy. Book early to avoid disappointment as only 12 children per day will have the opportunity to participate in this program.
