Junior Keeper Experience

  • From
  • Wings Wildlife Park
    137 Winduss Road, Gunns Plains TAS 7315, Australia

Get involved in National Science Week by discovering The Science of the Bee in the heart of where it all takes place.

Join us on Saturday 13 or Sunday 14 August for a taste of what is involved in working behind the scenes at Wing’s Wildlife Park - home to the largest collection of Tasmanian wildlife in Australia.

Kicking off at 10.30 am, the Junior Keeper Experience will give a glimpse into the day to day duties of a wildlife keeper and include interactive learning opportunities such as food preparation and enrichment (including making birdseed feeders), animal feeding and cleaning animal enclosures. Tailored information sessions on some of our most interesting Australian wildlife, as well as exploring the lifestyle of the Bee will give plenty of opportunity for questions from inquiring minds and Junior Keepers will break for lunch during the day (lunch is included as part of this experience).

Our vision is to encourage children to improve their knowledge in wildlife conservation and awareness or even consider a career in animal management, care or captive wildlife without the need to leave the North West Coast of Tasmania.

The fee includes:

  • Entry Fee
  • Lunch
  • Junior Keeper branded Cap
  • Bee Garden
  • Sticker
  • Certificate
