Mark and Emily’s day

A Willenhall man treated his girlfriend to a DZG Keeper experience and had a fantastic day with us!


Mark Goodwin surprised Emily Unitt for her 24th birthday and the couple spent the day helping care for some of the rarest animals in the world.

Mark said: “I had heard good things about Dudley Zoo and the redevelopment and read lots of positive reviews about the Keeper for a Day experience online so I decided to book it up.

“It was a fantastic day that I would recommend to anyone. The keepers were all very friendly and informative and helped make the day for us.

“We enjoyed all aspects, with Emily particularly loving the lemurs, penguins and meerkats as well as tickling the tapirs and I enjoyed the tigers, chimps and flying the owl.”
