Junior zookeeper experience

Find out exactly what it’s like to look after wild animals with our junior zookeeper experiences.


£50 per child


Aimed at children (7-11yrs) with a keen interest in becoming a zookeeper or working with animals later in life. Participants will go behind the scenes at Wildwood in Devon for an introduction to the world of the zoo keeper and will learn how we make sure that our animals are well fed, interested and cared for.


During the session, the junior zookeepers will distribute a feed and meet an animal. Other skills learned include how to make an animal’s life more exciting, tool use, animal feed preparation and basic health and safety.
