So you want to work at a zoo?
Belfast Zoo is excited to announce its first photography workshop in partnership with Jessops Academy. The award-winning Level 1 photography course is suitable for complete beginners and includes classroom learning and practical sessions in the beautiful setting of the zoo’s Cavehill site.
Shortly after Christmas 2018, Belfast zoo sent out a call requesting for the public to donate any natural Christmas trees and were amazed with the response!
Keepers at Belfast Zoological Gardens have been busy this January, performing their annual stock take of animals. This includes a head count of over 600 animals and more than 120 different species!
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.
