Ashley's Zoo Keeper Experience 

Ashley's Zoo Keeper Experience 

Cheeky monkey Ashley Jeary’s been with our friends at Paignton Zoo learning new skills. Be listening to Drivetime all this week to find out how he gets on being a Zoo Keeper!

Learn about life at Paignton Zoo and the animals that you will meet from the people that really know – the keepers.
Get stuck into food preparation, feeding and even mucking out! Best of all spend time with some of the world's most endangered animals.
The Zoo Keeper Experience is a fantastic four-hour experience that is just £195. You must be 16+ to take part and it runs on a Tuesday and a Saturday.
