Junior Keeper for a Day at Dartmoor Zoo



This experience if for two children and allows younger enthusiasts to work alongside our keepers with a variety of species. You’ll take part in feeding selected animals and cleaning their enclosures as well as creating some fun enrichment. This is less demanding than the adult keeper package, runs from 10:00-15:00 and is more suitable for 8-15 year olds.

You’ll clean and feed either the coati or rabbit or help clean out the goats, plus make enrichment for the meerkat, raccoon dog orcoati  – it’s your choice.

As well as feeding the otters and having a private Close Encounter session with our reptiles and amphibians, you will meet our notorious lynx!
