Zoo Keeper for a day

 
 
For many of us, the chance to see what goes on behind the scenes at any zoo or wildlife park would be something beyond our wildest dreams!  But now the opportunity to do just that is on offer, and could be a great gift for any animal lover who really wants to have the chance to talk to staff, meet some of the animals & get stuck in for the day.  PLEASE read the key info or notes for each experience before you buy - many have age restrictions for instance.
 
For specific species, please check their own pages e.g. Monkey Keeper, Big Cat Keeper
