I would like to thank Lynn, Amy, Megan and the rest of the elephant keepers today for making my whole experience as a keeper fantastic. I have enjoyed the whole day, including the mucking out, chopping carrots and being able to get so close to the elephants. You all do a great job and work so hard. Thank you again. Loved the whole day.
I joined the Cat team and am still reeling in excitement about my experience...it was a once in a lifetime experience! The guys welcomed me in as part of the team and I was fortunate enough to be trust to join them whilst they sedated a Sumatra Tiger and transported her to the vets quarter for a check up! I also spent the afternoon feeding all the cats individually and was even able to enter the enclosure with a few different cats and dogs which was superb.!!
