Junior Keeper

This program uses a range of hands on activities that immerse learners into the life of a keeper. Activities such as animal observations, food preparation and cleaning require teamwork and personal endeavor.

The program can meet Science, Geography and Mathematics outcomes. During the Safari Tour and activities, conversations regarding the animals in the wild and the actions we can take provide triggers for further discussion.
