New Junior Keeper Experiences
31st May 2012
Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm is encouraging budding zoo keepers to get hands on with an array of exotic animals. The newly launched Junior Keeper Experience allows children aged from 6-10 to meet and feed zoo animals. Junior zoo keepers can interact with animals large and small, from tiny meerkats to giant giraffes. It is a great day out with the chance to stroke the giraffes, cuddle the tapirs and weigh, feed and bathe a variety of cute reptiles.

Head Zoo Keeper Chris Wilkinson said: “For a number of years we’ve had lots of interest from families looking to find a special animal experience for the younger children, one which is safe and fun but where they actually get to be close to exciting zoo animals, not just rabbits and guinea pigs! “We’re delighted to now to offer the new Junior Keeper Experience for youngsters who want to get hands-on with their favourite animals, in a safe, supervised format. We’re expecting our Junior Keeper Experiences to be very popular!” Buying a Junior Keeper Experience online allows you and a guest full admission to the zoo for the day as well, so you can enjoy all the other wonderful attractions that Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm has such as the longest hedge maze in the world and a full working farm.
