The event will offer rare insight to the unique roles the Zoo Keeper plays within your zoo.

Join us in the Waterside Theatre, daily, at 12:00 noon where you will be able to participate in a special game that mimics Zoo Keeper work. Then watch as Zoo staff compete through demonstrations and in challenges to show you what it really takes to be a keeper. Show our Zoo Keepers how much you appreciate and support them by bringing a special card to say thank you for everything they do! When you bring in a card your name will be entered into a draw for a chance to win a family pack of passes to the Zoo!
