Zookeeper Experience

BCA Zookeeper Experience:

Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions we will not be restarting our Zookeeper Experiences until January 2021. If you have a voucher and would like to book a date please contact the zoo team at zoo@bca.ac.uk

Spend three hours experiencing what it’s like to be a Zookeeper here at BCA Zoo. Come and help feed, clean and look after some of the amazing animals living here. After a health and safety briefing, you will head over to our Zoo kitchen to help rustle up some unusual lunches before dishing them out to the animal eagerly anticipating your arrival. You will then get a chance to get mucky helping to clean up after our cheeky meerkats and their roommate Denzil.

This encounter can be tailored to suit anyone so please get in contact if you have a farmyard fanatic or a lizard lover or even if you would rather just spend three hours with access to our enclosures to take some stunning photos without any barriers.

This encounter is suitable for 7 years +.

Anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. If no adults are taking part in the encounter one free adult spectator will be admitted per booking.

This encounter will last approximately 3 hours.

Sturdy closed-toe shoes must be worn to take part in this encounter. We do also recommend wearing long trousers and long-sleeved t-shirts.

You are welcome to bring cameras with you to take photos however BCA accepts no liability for damage to goods.

We recommend ensuring you are up to date with your tetanus vaccinations before taking part in an animal encounter. It is your responsibility to check you are happy with the vaccination status of anyone in your party.

T&C’s apply.
