My son (7 years old) had an absolutely great day learning be a junior zoo keeper. He was so enthusiastic about all the facts he learnt about the animals and the opportunity to have such a hands on experience was fantastic. The photos which we received are now hanging proudly on his bedroom wall. Thanks you to all the team at Wild Action!

I had an amazing day. We really got our hands dirty and got lots of things done. I saw lots of animals and was able to get up close to them. Chris taught us lots of facts and safety tips. I really loved that we were allowed to hold lots of animals and I even felt some of them bite my finger, Chris did ask me first though. It was also great to come home and show my family the photos.
