Want to work with animals? We've got the perfect course for you!
Practical experience is an absolute necessity for anyone wishing to pursue a career with animals, but this is often difficult to obtain. As such, we are pleased to present our animal-based course for 15-17 year olds, newly revamped for the 2014 season!
The course runs over 3 days from 9:30am – 3:30pm. Each day will include 3-4 hours of practical work with our zookeepers, as well as theory sessions with our education team. Students will work with a variety of species, completing tasks such as preparing food, cleaning enclosures and designing enrichment items. Theory sessions will focus on the species that the students will be working with, covering a diverse range of topics from anatomy to enclosure design. Students will receive a certificate of completion and a written reference detailing the work carried out.
The course is priced at £300 per person, and includes a complimentary family ticket for entry into the zoo and theme park on a day of your choice. With a maximum of just 6 students on each course, Keeper Academy offers a highly personal experience allowing you to really get involved with life at the zoo!
