The award winning Paradise Wildlife Park has over 400 animals onsite, making it one of the most thrilling wildlife attractions in the UK. There’s no better place to spend the day shadowing a Monkey Keeper. You’ll have the opportunity to help care for the monkeys and apes, learn about primate conservation issues and even get the chance to meet some lemurs. Afterwards you can stay and enjoy the rest of the attractions at the park. A perfect day out for animal lovers and aspiring zoo keepers.
Help to care for the monkeys and apes living at Paradise Wildlife Park for a morning and learn why these creatures are so important to the natural world. The park has two species of gibbon along with many species of tamarin and marmoset; join the Primate Team to help care for them and learn about the important conservation issues Paradise is involved with. Your morning will include cleaning the gibbon enclosure, food preparation and enclosure enrichment. Get down and dirty cleaning the squirrel monkey house and then enjoy a tour of the Wonders of the Rainforest exhibit to learn about the marmosets and tamarins. Although not strictly monkeys, finally comes the cleaning of our lemurs with the opportunity to meet and feed them. Make sure you make the most of your day; arrive early and stay late to enjoy the other attractions and animals at the Park.
