Keeper For The Day

Have you ever wanted to see what it’s like to be a zoo keeper here at The Fenn Bell Conservation Project? Well this is your chance to find out and spend a day behind the scenes to discover what it is that our keepers do on a daily basis.

Now there’s no such thing as a typical day for any of our zoo keepers, but a typical Keeper For A Day experience may involve the following activities:

  • Meet at least 6 of the different species living here
  • Delivering feed to some of our animals
  • Tour of kitchens and off public areas
  • Food preparation for herbivores (fruit and vegetables)
  • Food preparation for carnivores (meat and animal products, as well as live insects)
  • Cleaning out and poo picking enclosures
  • Enclosure refurbishment
  • Animal enrichment

But working with animals is rarely typical, so be prepared for anything and don’t forget to bring your camera. There will be lots of photographic opportunities.

Availability can be seen on the calendar below;
