What Can I Expect

Roll your sleeves up, prepared to get stuck in and be a keeper for a day! This session will see you effectively become part of the animal park team for a half or full day, helping them with the day to day running of this brilliant little wildlife centre near Telford.

After a visit from the Animal Man to his school inspired him, animal lover Will Dorrell opened this farm centre in 2010, to let youngsters and families get really close to some amazing animals, native to all corners of the globe.

These are very much a hands-on experiences, with you undertaking many of the tasks a keeper would do daily.  On the full day, your working day starts with giving the reptiles their breakfast (we won't tell you here what their favourite dishes are!). Then you will take on a a true keeper's assistant role as you help out with the Meet the Animals session for park guests.

Then it's food time again, with the hungry lambs and kid goats needing nourishment, so you'll be shown how to bottle feed these youngsters (one of our favourite bits in the keeper's day!). After collect fresh laid eggs from the chicken coops it's time to meet the brilliant duo of Pepe and Blossom the Skunks and Smoky the Raccoon too.

The dainty and rather shy Red Deer will be waiting for you to feed them and once that's done it's time for a break, after all keepers need feeding too! After lunch with your new-found 'work' colleagues it's off to say hello to the mischievous Meerkats. Don your assistant cap again when you take part in the Meet the Reptiles session - including helping move Bonnie the very long Burmese Python!

The half day session is run in similar vein and gives you time to meet some of the all-out Hoo Farm favourite furry friends, like cuddling the gorgeous Meerkats, before feeding those adorable, yet cheeky fruit-loving ring-tailed Lemurs. It's not all about feeding though, the Giant Tortoise will be wanting a bath!

Your three hours with the animals comes to a close with a good hour to meet and handle some of the farm's reptilian residents, the gorgeous fluffy owls and the cute hedgehogs too.

If you know someone who loves animals, we think they will absolutely love our keeper for a day courses. This is a proper working wildlife farm, so as an extra pair of hands, you will be welcome addition to the keeper team.  And it's not all about cleaning and feeding, you might see some lovely moments, such as flying the birds, or even helping judge a sheep and goat race!

Really good day out.

I went as the nominated adult for my daughter as the day was all for her. She had a great time holding the animals, stroking the hedgehog, feeding the lemurs, so much so that she can't actually name what was the best part of her day. Despite having done similar things before I also had a great time and was really impressed with the breadth and depth of knowledge shown by the keepers.
Yes, I recommend this product.
