Calling all little animal lovers. Sydney Zoo is giving five lucky kids the job of a lifetime – to be a Mini Zookeeper.
Sydney Zoo is a brand new zoo, opening early next year and it is calling on children to put their paws up
to play a starring role in the launch of the zoo, travelling around the world to meet the new animal residents and bringing them home to Western Sydney.
Who Can Apply
The coveted Mini Zookeeper positions are open to children aged 5 to 12 who have a passion for creatures big and small, and are wildly enthusiastic about learning. The top five applicants will become the mini-faces of Sydney Zoo, with unlimited access to Sydney’s best new zoo.
The first zoo to be built in Sydney in over 100 years, Sydney Zoo will be a world-class facility that redefines the visitor experience. With safari-like landscapes and cutting-edge technology for animal welfare, Sydney Zoo is set to become Australia’s most modern and progressive zoo, located in Western Sydney’s Bungarribee Park.
Set to become one of Australia’s major family attractions, the zoo will exhibit a wide range of iconic animal species. By using modern exhibit design, advanced behavioural enrichment methods, technology, water features and elevated boardwalks Sydney Zoo will offer the highest standards of animal welfare, while offering an immersive, safari-like experience for visitors.
This initiative reinforces Sydney Zoo’s commitment to education and animal welfare, with each Mini Zookeeper playing an important role in making the Zoo a safe and happy new home for its animals.
Managing Director of Sydney Zoo, Jake Burgess, says “Sydney Zoo will open its doors in early 2019 and become one of the most significant attractions in Western Sydney. We are excited to find five Mini Zookeepers who share our passion for animals and give them a once in a lifetime opportunity join us as we bring animals from around the world to their new home at Sydney Zoo.”
