Spend a day as a zookeeper working with cute, strange and fascinating animals at Dudley Zoo!
Go behind the scenes at Dudley Zoo and experience the life of a zookeeper for a day! A perfect day out for animal lovers, you’ll spend your time at the zoo working with a variety of amazing animals, finding out all about how to prepare food, feed and groom them, as well as how to stimulate the animals’ natural behaviour through educational play. With an experienced and knowledgeable zookeeper to guide you throughout the day, you’ll learn all sorts of fascinating facts about zoo life and will get to spend plenty of time up with the animals. This experience includes entry to the zoo for yourself and a guest, plus lunch and a souvenir gift to take home.
Dudley Zoo is home to more than 1300 animals, with 168 species, and includes some of the rarest creatures on Planet Earth.
When you arrive at the zoo, you'll be met by the member of the zoo keeping team who'll be your guide throughout the day. During your six hour experience you will work with different animals – such as lions, giraffes, chimpanzees and more. This hands-on experience includes a range of activities including food preparation, feeding, grooming the animals and animal enrichment. Lunch at the zoo's Queen Mary Restaurant is included, and you will also receive a souvenir gift to take home with you.
