An amazing opportunity to be a Carnivore Keeper for a morning for just £99 per person. During this one-and-a-half-hour experience you will be working alongside one of the Carnivore Keepers. Our Keeper will introduce you to our large Carnivores with protected contact and share interesting facts with you about the individual animals and their species. This experience is not for the squeamish as you will be trying your hand at butchering meat to feed to the animals.
Once you’ve prepared the meat you will then have the opportunity to feed and train one of our African Lions.
After meeting the Lions (with protected contact) you will be off to meet (with protected contact) the Hudson Bay Wolves, a rare and interesting species, at this stage of your experience you will learn about the turbulent history of the Hudson Bay Wolf and have an opportunity to ask your Carnivore Keepers questions.
Last but not least you will meet (with protected contact)the Grey Wolves, during this meeting you may come face to face with a Grey Wolf as our pack are quite relaxed around humans. Our keeper will take you close to their enclosure and tell you about the Grey Wolves and the impact they have on their environment as apex predators.
