Junior Zoo Keeper Experience

Perfect for youngsters that love animals!

Does your little one love animals and do they want a behind the scenes view into one of the most exciting jobs? Then a Junior Keeper Experience here at Twycross Zoo is perfect!

With hundreds of animals to care for, no two days are the same. It’s a perfect way for aspiring young zoo keepers to get an insight into this exciting and busy job.

Learn more about the wonderful animals who live at Twycross Zoo, what they like to eat and how they interact with each other. Our keepers may need a hand preparing food, or mucking out an enclosure, which are all daily tasks essential to keeping our residents happy. Activities will vary depending on the needs of the animals.

Junior Keepers will have the opportunity to get close to animals, ask keepers questions and make intriguing enrichment to help keep our animal friends active. What are you waiting for? Pull on your wellies and get stuck in!

Your experience includes…

  • Junior Keeper Experience (working with a range of animals such as meerkats, reptiles and giant tortoises for example)
  • Lunch (for the Junior Keeper only, in the form of catering vouchers)
  • Zoo admission for the Junior Keeper plus one accompanying adult
  • Souvenir for the Junior Keeper

Available every weekend throughout the year, as well as every weekday during school holidays.
