The Zoo Rangers are out and about in the zoo every day delivering our animal talks and activities to the public.
Many of you will have spotted our fab team of Zoo Rangers carrying out animal talks and a whole host of other engaging and exciting activities within the zoo. They’re animal experts, so you can quiz them on any animal-related questions you have, they deliver our daily animal talks where they also share more information about the work our conservationists are carrying out in the field, and provide you with other ideas of how you can Act for Wildlife.
The team offer something extra and special for our zoo visitors – no matter what your age! Including Little Monkey Mornings for early years, Little Explorers Outdoor Adventure Club for 5-8 year olds, exciting activities for Junior Members age 8-17 and our Memory Café for those living with dementia.
You can also help feed some of the bird species at the zoo, feed our butterflies and get up close to some spikey stick insects with the Zoo Rangers. The team also organise a variety of special events throughout the year to celebrate World Animal Days, celebrate our brilliant native species and encourage others to Play and get involved with our campaigns.
Zoo Rangers can also be spotted at different locations around the zoo with incredible animal artefacts for you to get your hands on and discover more about our conservation and science work.
