Junior ZooKeeping
Junior ZooKeeping is a one of a kind experience for children interested in animals and their care! EARTH Ltd works with Southwick’s Zoo to provide this this program which allows children the opportunity to get a behind the scenes look at how animals are cared for here at the zoo and what it takes to be a zookeeper. Junior Zookeepers assist with diet preparation, create enrichment, help care for some animals, and more. For ages 6-9 and 10-12. Each session runs from 9am-12pm. Children must be registered at least 24 hours in advance. Full payment is due at the time of registration.

Topics Herbivores What does a rhino eat? How do you care for a giraffe? What is the softest herbivore in the world? What does a porcupine like to play with? Come learn about our plant-eating pals and help plan their diet, make them some enrichment, and get an up-close and personal hands on experience with some of our favorite herbivores! Carnivores Meat is on the menu!  What does a lion love?  What does a coati crave? Learn how we feed our carnivorous critters and help us make them some lunch. You will also learn how the keepers entertain some of our smartest and most dangerous animals by making them enrichment. You’ll even get a chance to interact with some of our sharp toothed inhabitants. Primates Help us make toys for our monkeys to monkey around with. Pick out produce for our peckish Patas monkeys. Jr ZooKeepers will get to meet a marmoset and get to know a galago. Primates are our closest relatives, learn how much they are they are like us and how they are different. Birds Birds are some of the smartest animals in the Animal Kingdom, so what exactly does it take to care for the closest living relatives of the dinosaurs?  Why don’t they fly away? How can they talk? What can we tell about a bird by its beak?  Jr ZooKeepers get to make macaw munchies, play with a parrot, and chill with a chicken.  Break out of your shell and help us care for our fascinating feathered friends.
