    Did the zoo keeper for a day on 1st November, even though the weather was not the best the keepers made it an amazing experience that I will never forget! I got to do so much to help out including helping to clean the orangutan’s enclosures, feeding the bears, lemurs, meerkats and so much more, preparing the food for aye ayes and learnt about the farm and got to deliver the food around to all the different animals! Such an amazing experience would recommend to anyone! So worth it! Thankyou to everyone you were all amazing!!!!
