Due to the success of our first ever Junior Keeper Academy, we have decided to run another course in January! The course will give children from 8-16 an insight into what being a zoo keeper is really like. The course involves a combination of academic and practical elements, including helping us to care for some of our amazing animals each week! Tuition will be provided by our dedicated keepers, covering a wide range of topics relevant to exotic animal keeping.


The animal management sector is a very competitive industry; a demonstrable interest and practical experience in animal care can prove invaluable. This is an ideal opportunity for any that wish to pursue an animal related career in the future. All graduates of the course will receive a certificate upon completion, verifying their accomplishment, as well as a portfolio of all work completed during the course.

The course will run every Saturday afternoon, 1pm-4pm from 10/01/2015 to 14/02/2015. The full course is just £76 per child, which includes free zoo entry for 1 adult each week during tuition time. To ensure a more personal experience, which your child can treasure for years to come, places are limited to 8 children per programme. Please contact us on 015395 63027 or email us at for more information, or to book your place. Places will be offered on a first come first served basis. Discounts will be offered for multiple children booking from the same family.
