Stage 5 - 6 Day Program: Meet A Keeper


The Meet a Keeper program is a day-long experience for school students who are fascinated by the work of our team does and want to get a better idea of what it’s like to work at our Zoos or in captive animal care in general.

What's involved

This full day program is available at both Taronga Zoo Sydney and Taronga Western Plains Zoo Dubbo. See below for further information.

At the Zoo

The unique program begins with a seminar presented by a talented panel of Taronga Keepers, Educators and staff members in which students can learn about all aspects of caring for animals including the qualifications required, core responsibilities of a keeper, future career opportunities and more.

Following the seminar, students will explore the Zoo and make their own way to a mystery behind-the-scenes animal tour, giving them a real-life look at the way our teams work. 

Meet a Keeper is available to Years 9, 10 and 11 students who have expressed a serious interest in zoo keeping as a career.

The program can be booked online and is subject to limited availability.
