Be a Keeper for a Day
4 Apr - 25 Oct 2013 – 8:45 am - 4:00 pm
This amazing Keeper for a Day experience gives you a once in a lifetime opportunity to get up close and personal with some of ZSL’s most popular animals.
It also offers a unique insight into the day-to-day life of our keepers and their charges.
Budding keepers can try their hand at tasks such as feeding the giraffes, mucking out rhinos and meeting our elephants, all of which makes a day to remember for any animal lover!
What the experience entails
As part of a group of up to five people, you will be assigned to one of our experienced keepers, who will be your host for the day. Once you have been kitted out in your overalls, you will get to try your hand at a number of essential duties.
Activities vary from mucking out enclosures, to preparing food and devising enrichment activities, and of course, feeding and meeting some of our animals.
Keeper for a Day runs on weekdays between April - October at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo.
