Belfast Zoo offers children the chance to try out a future career in zoo keeping with new ‘Junior Keeper’ experience!

Many children dream of becoming a zoo keeper when they grow up, and now Belfast Zoo is offering the chance for young animal lovers to try out their career aspirations with a new ‘junior keeper for a day’ experience.


Belfast Zoo’s new junior keeper experience provides an opportunity for children aged 8 to 16 to take part in an interactive experience with a variety of species including Asian elephant, marmosets, a range of reptiles, barn owl and giant anteater.


The brand new experience will give the next generation of zoo keepers the change to get up close and personal with some of their favourite animals, access behind-the-scenes areas and gain an insight into the day-to-day life of caring for some of the world’s most endangered species.
