Kettering couple Gemma and Nick Vinci had a fantastic time with us as DZG Keepers for a Day.
Nick, pictured above with Gemma, bought the experience as a gift for his wife’s 25th birthday and the two of them spent the day feeding and caring for our collection of endangered animals.
Nick said: “The whole day was so well-structured and the keepers were so knowledgeable.
“No question was too much trouble and there was nothing they couldn’t answer.
“It was absolutely fantastic and we got so close to the animals.
“Gemma has always wanted to be a zoo keeper for the day and she really loved it. It was extremely hands-on and we felt very involved.”
Nick said the tapirs were his favourite animal but they also enjoyed feeding our penguins and tigers.
