Jane Booth, from Derbyshire, had an ab fab time when she joined DZG’s staff as a Keeper for a Day.
Jane worked with keepers behind the scenes on the birds section, ungulates, big cats and primates, while her partner John explored the site on his own and the couple have already vowed to come back for another look around together!
Jane said: “All five keepers made my day so interesting. I learnt so much and had an absolutely fabulous day.
“I was really apprehensive as I am hard of hearing and wear an aid, but all the keepers were really kind and considerate and all the animals I came across were just wonderful, healthy and happy.
“We will definitely be returning so that I too can have a look at the animals I missed!”
