Zoo 4 Who?
The Peel Zookeeper 4 A Day program is suitable for wildlife enthusiasts from 8 to 16 years of age. Of course, it’s not just age that makes you suitable to be a Zookeeper. You also need to be brave, hard working, and responsible. After all, you’ll be dealing with all sorts of wild animals. Some fly, some slither, and some, if you don’t treat them with respect, might just bite. So, being a Zookeeper isn’t for the faint-hearted. But, it could just be the best experience of your life.
Zoo 4 U
For all intents and purposes, the Peel Zookeeper 4 A Day program opens up our Zoo for you. That’s right. If you’re lucky enough to get in to one of the limited places available, we’ll open doors for you that other members of the public never get to step through. So, take advantage of the offer. This experience is rare indeed.
To Do At The Zoo
There’s always heaps to do at the Zoo and it’s often quite unplanned. Nature can be surprising like that. One minute you might be bottle feeding baby Tasmanian Devils, the next you could be holding a 3.5 metre Olive Python. Regardless of what nature throws up, what we can plan for our Junior Zookeepers is an unbelievable day.
Junior Zookeepers can look forward to some hands on work with the team at Peel Zoo. That work can include animal handling, husbandry, and feeding, as well as experiencing and learning about the captive breeding of endangered species. In general, the opportunity of being a Junior Zookeeper at Peel Zoo gives children a greater understanding, appreciation, and respect for the world around us.
