Courses & Work Experience

Due to the ongoing situation with Coronavirus COVID-19 (see our latest updates here) we have taken the decision to suspend all sales and bookings of Keeper Courses at this time. All current bookings will still be honoured as long as we remain open. Please keep checking back as we will open bookings again once this crisis is over.


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.

Research

Academic research at zoos is an important aspect of animal welfare and provides an understanding of a wide range of animal behavior.

The health of our zoo family, which includes our visitors, staff and animals, is our top priority. In light of the most recent advice from Public Health England and the government, we have closed Blackpool Zoo at until further notice.

Please be assured that our dedicated keeper team will continue to provide the best care for our animals during the closure.

If you’ve booked tickets for any day during this closure, you can exchange them for any other date in 2020 or we can provide a refund. Please send your booking details to tickets@blackpoolzoo.org.uk.

We’ll keep you informed through our website and social media channels. We apologise for any disappointment and thank you for your patience.

We really look forward to welcoming you back to Blackpool Zoo when we re-open.

Stay safe everyone.
