Take a walk on the wild side

Your chance to become a zookeeper for the day,
at Chessington World of Adventures Resort

This competition is now closed

We’re giving one lucky winner the amazing opportunity to join a zookeeper at Chessington World of Adventures Resort, for an incredible day of animal encounters.

This hands-on experience will see you get behind the scenes at Chessington Zoo – one of Britain’s top wildlife and conservation centres.

You’ll learn all about life as a zookeeper – as well as discovering the quirks, traits and behaviours of the animals they look after.

After being introduced to the animals, you’ll spend the day helping your zookeeper guide with their daily tasks.

Throughout the day, you’ll have the special chance to help out with the animals’ food preparation, learn about their care and welfare, and keep their enclosures spick and span.

Your special animal encounter includes the chance to enjoy the following:

  • Accompany a zookeeper for the day – with the chance to ask all the questions you like
  • Meet the animals
  • Give the animals their morning feed, and help to prepare their food for the afternoon
  • Help out with the feed during the public talk and presentation
  • Clean the animals’ enclosures

The closing date is Wednesday 9 October. Terms and conditions apply.
