Ambitions to work at DZG!

Seventeen-year-old Richard Harrison was buzzing so much after being a DZG Keeper for the Day he asked his mum: “How can I get to work at Dudley Zoo?”


The teenager, from Billingham Dales, in Lincolnshire, hopes to study zoology at university and has dreamed of being a zookeeper since he was four.

His mum Vicky Harrison said:”He absolutely loved the experience, which was a gift from his aunt and uncle, and came home all fired up saying how can I get a job at Dudley Zoo?

“He thought the keepers and the relationships they had with the animals was brilliant. Richard couldn’t get over how the keepers knew all the different personalities of the animals.”
