Find out exactly what it's like to look after wild animals with our Junior Zoo Keeper Experiences. Aimed at children with a keen interest in becoming a zoo keeper or working with animals later in life. Participants will go behind the scenes at Wildwood for an introduction to the world of the zoo keeper and will learn how we make sure that our animals are well fed, interested and cared for. 
During the morning (10am - 12noon), the Junior Zoo Keepers will distribute a feed and meet an animal. Other skills learned include how to make an animal's life more exciting, tool use, animal feed preparation and basic health and safety. 
Cost: £50 per child. (7-11yrs)
