Meet A Keeper

Meet a Keeper is a one-day program for school students aged 14 years and over who have expressed a keen interest in pursuing a career at the Zoo or in the captive animal care industry.

This unique program includes a seminar presented by a talented panel of Zookeepers, Zoo educators and other Zoo staff members. Students have the opportunity to learn about all aspects of zoo-keeping, including:

  • Qualifications required
  • Career opportunities
  • Core responsibilities
  • Careers structures and wages

These themes and more are explored in the morning session, which runs from approximately 10.00am to 11.30am (arrive at 9.30am to register on the day).

Afterwards, guests are invited to explore the Zoo as they make their own way to a mystery behind-the-scenes animal tour. Tour times vary and are arranged at time of booking. Mystery tours run for approximately 25-35 minutes and are arranged by staff on the day.
