Zoo Rangers

Saturday Afternoon Activity Group for 13 – 17 year olds!

Zoo Rangers runs every Saturday afternoon for 6 weeks!

Each Saturday afternoon is packed with a range of zoo based activities!

Children will learn more about our animal residents and gain a clearer understanding of the role that Twycross Zoo plays to conserve and protect some of the worlds most endangered and at risk animal species.

Some of the practical activities can include: creating animal enrichment, assisting the keepers with cleaning tasks such as mucking out, window washing or poo picking, behaviour research and exploring the zoo. Please note, Twycross Zoo is at the forefront of animal welfare as we encourage our animals to behave as naturally as possible, meaning that we will not have physical contact with our animal residents during the Zoo Rangers programme.
