Junior Keeper Experience

Description: Join our keepers for three hours packed full of close encounters and fantastic experiences as younger animal lovers get the chance to experience what it’s like to be zookeeper. While they learn about the animals that live in Edinburgh Zoo they will work with a range of animals helping to prepare and deliver their diets, make enrichment and have special hands-on magic moments. Go behind-the-scenes for a unique insight into the daily routines of Zoo life and get your hands dirty – literally!

You will also receive an exclusive Keeper Experience t-shirt and certificate on the day of your experience!
