Keeper for a day

If you fancy mucking in or mucking out at Belfast Zoo, then here’s your chance.

Starting at 8.30am, you will learn all about the animals we look after, the work we do to conserve species under threat and you can personally find out more about daily life at the zoo.

You must book your experience.
