Have you ever wondered how Taronga Zoo’s keepers train a seal, a lion or even an elephant?

Come behind the scenes for a once in a lifetime experience at Taronga Zoo and learn about animal training from the experts!

Animal Training is a course designed to give you a peek at the skills, know-how and animal training techniques used by our keepers at Taronga.

Participants will be treated to a full day with Taronga Zoo’s expert Animal Trainers. You will spend part of your day in the classroom learning about the theory around training and part of your day out and about in the Zoo seeing these principles put into practice with some of the animals in the Zoo's collection.
