Start Something Wild!
The Junior Keeper Program is open to qualified young people between the ages of 12 and 16 years old. It’s a chance to learn about the opportunities available in other animal/conservation/science fields.
In addition to working directly with the animals, Junior Keepers are involved with keeper duties and helping to present information to the public. In addition to gaining information about the exotic animals in our collection, Junior Keepers learn about the importance of caring for our native species. They develop public speaking, organizational, and team building skills, just to name a few.
Become a Junior Keeper!
The Junior Keeper Program is open to a select, dedicated few who are able to make a long-term commitment.
