Date and time
Both dates are fully booked
Are you 14-17 years old and thinking of a career in the zoo or would like to learn what skills you need for a career in conservation?
Join our zoo rangers for a full day in the zoo with some hands-on experience of what it’s like to work here. Our animal and plant teams in the zoo have a busy day with lots of habitats to maintain and animals to care for, so expect the day to be quite physical and fast paced.
