Keeper for the day
Due to the situation with COVID-19, we have taken the decision to suspend all sales and bookings of Animal Experiences at this time. If you have a current booking, you will be contacted if it needs to be postponed. Please keep checking back as we will open sales again once we have capacity to take new bookings, this will be later in the year.
For anyone with a currently unbooked voucher, we will be looking to extend your expiry date once we are accepting bookings again. Further information will be emailed to you when you are able to book again. Thank you for your understanding.
The ultimate experience for any animal lover! Spend a whole day in the zoo working alongside our expert staff to care for some of your favourite animals.
During this intense and action packed day, you'll be working with animals from all over the world and can expect to enjoy all or some of the following:
- Muck in with the mucking out
- Get up close and personal as you meet some of our friendlier residents
- Help prepare and hand deliver tasty treats
Your experience will involve working with a selection of the following – tapirs, zebras, bongos, giraffes, aardvarks, anteaters, camels, red river hogs, pelicans, penguins, otters, sea lions and lemurs.
We only accept one booking per slot, so your experience will be exclusive to you… and a friend if you can bring yourself to share!
Each experience lasts for six hours and you will be free to enjoy the zoo for the remainder of the day. You’ll also get a complimentary car park pass, lunch, certificates and a Blackpool Zoo souvenir.
