Zookeeper talks

free Come along to our free 'Meet the Zookeeper' talks and learn about animal behaviours, personalities and conservation issues as you watch their feeding or enrichment!


'Meet the Zookeeper' talks are held 7 days a week to help you make the most of your zoo experience.  Sometimes keeper talks will involve feeding of the animals, sometimes enrichment, sometimes just a talk, as we try to ensure as close a variety of activities to best mimic what would happen naturally in the wild.  Please note, visitors are not permitted to feed the animals.
