Werribee Open Range Zoo

Keeper for a Day at Werribee Open Range Zoo

Are you interested in working with animals?

If you are keen to find out what it takes to work in a zoo, caring for the amazing array of different animals, then come out to Werribee Open Range Zoo next school holidays. Come and discover what a keeper's day really involves!

Keeper for a Day allows participants to work in the Zoo for the day, helping out our keepers and learning about one of the most rewarding jobs at a zoo!

You will go behind-the-scenes, taking part in many daily duties of a keeper, which could include:

  • Animal enrichment
  • Exhibit maintenance
  • Animal encounters

You will also get to go on a safari tour with a difference and have the opportunity to speak with Zoo keepers about their jobs and experience.

Be prepared for the smell, sweat and of course, the fun of it all!
