Rachel’s birthday surprise!

An animal lover from Gloucester had a 21st birthday to remember when she was surprised with a Keeper for a Day experience just minutes before meeting some of the world’s rarest animals!


Rachel Millard was treated to the day by her parents, who brought her to the zoo and then handed over the paperwork and details to the astonished birthday girl as they arrived.

Rachel said: “I thoroughly enjoyed the day, it was wonderful getting up close to the animals and being able to touch them and learn more about the individual animals and their stories. I have many favourite memories, but the part I enjoyed most was feeding the big cats through the wires with a bamboo stick. 

“Thank you for a wonderful day out, the staff are really friendly and made me feel very welcome.”
