I was a Zoo Keeper for the day today and it was brilliant! Thank you to Kirsty, Britney and Helen for giving me a day to remember and to other staff I met who were very friendly and welcoming...Next time I visit this lovely zoo (using my annual gold card) I will do so with a lot more understanding of both the animals I met and of how the staff take such good care of them. - Gill, February 2019
We have just been Keeper for the day and it was amazing. The staff have been there years and know everything about their animals they look after and see how much they care. They are well looked after and it was great to see what goes on behind the scenes and to be part of the experience was awesome. - Kelly, January 2019
