The Zookeeper for the Day experience involves a cross-section of the animals we have here at the zoo. Our regular zookeepers might be asked to work on any of our animal sections, and you’ll be no different! Whether you’re chopping up fruit for the lemurs, sweeping up after the meerkats or taking observations on tiger behavior, you’ll get a unique insight into life behind the scenes at the zoo.
