Stage 5 - 6 Day Program: Meet A Keeper

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 the Education team does and those after a better idea of what it’s like to work at our Zoos or in captive animal care in general.

The program begins with a guest speaker presentation by a talented panel of Taronga Zoo Keepers, Educators, Human Resources, Taronga Training Institute staff and YATZ 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 presentation, 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.

Suitable for

Stage 5 - 6 students (Years 9 - 11).
