Keeper day for Christie girls

Two sisters from North Yorkshire had a brilliant time when they become Little Zoo Keepers at DZG.

Lauren and Lucy Christine, aged 11 and nine, from Northallerton, quizzed our keepers throughout the day with lots of questions, as they fed penguins and met our mob of meerkats.

Mum, Susan, said: “The girls thought their experience was really good fun and they loved all the animals they met, although getting the opportunity to get close to the tapirs was their favouirte part and they both said they would love to do more!”


Little Zoo Keeper experiences are designed for children aged eight to 13 years and give youngsters the opportunity to help keepers feed, clean and care for the zoo’s smaller animals such as the farm stock, penguins, meerkats and tapirs.
