22 days to go . . .

There’s 22 days to go and DZG’s marketing team are busy taking festive gift orders and bookings.

But there’s still plenty of time left to organise the perfect present for that special animal-lover and actively support our vital conservation and education programmes.

22_andrea_1For those wanting to find out what it really takes to work at DZG, why not consider a Keeper for a Day experience or a Little Zoo Keeper day for children aged eight –13.

Priced from £80 participants discover what really goes on behind-the-scenes, joining keepers for the day as they go about their daily duties of helping care for some of the world’s rarest animals.

Or why not look at a Close Encounter?

From £50 visitors can choose to get up close and personal with their favourite species for up to 30 minutes and with encounters including feeding the lemurs, big cats, or penguins there’s something for everyone!

There’s also the chance to help pay for special animal treats, toys, bedding, health checks and more by purchasing an animal adoption.

With more than 200 different species to choose from across the 40-acre site, adopters receive a certificate, personalised animal photo, gift card and zoo admission ticket, from just £30 and there’s also the chance to upgrade your adoption to include a personalised plaque outside the enclosure of your chosen animal.

Marketing Assistant, Andrea Hales, pictured above, said: “DZG’s animal experiences and adoption packages make fantastic gifts for all ages and we’re already busy with bookings this year.

“All money raised through these experiences supports DZG in helping educate and care for some of the rarest animals on the planet.”
