Get a little wild.
What does a keeper do to care for wild animals? Learn from our keepers themselves at Zookeeper Academy through keeper chats and a self-guided junior Zookeeper challenge!
Do the Junior Zookeeper Challenge and find out! Self-guided activities around the park include:
- A balance beam - Keepers must be sure-footed to work in all kinds of terrain
- Log rolling - Keepers must use their muscles to arrange "furniture" animal habitats to keep them new, fresh and exciting
- Poo Pick Up - Not glamorous, but a vital part of the job
- Diet Prep - Practice sorting proper diets for different animals
What's it like to be a real zookeeper? Here's your chance to find out. (Hint: It's more than just poop.)
Come meet our keepers, and spot their stories around the park.
