So You Want to Be an Animal Trainer: March 21 st Lions, Tigers & Bears OH MY. Well here at EcoAdventures it’s Gators , Snakes & Lizards, OH MY! Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be an animal keeper? If yes, then you’ve come to the right place. Not only has some of our staff worked in some great zoos and aquariums but we have a great collection of our own! This camp was designed for students that want to find out what it is like to work with animals. Maybe you could be a dolphin trainer or animal trainer, or even a vet? It a lot of fun working with animals but you will also be introduced to the non –glamorous things you do as a zoo keeper. That’s right- the yucky stuff- Clean poop! We won’t make you clean it- but you can get to make, inspect and eat your own edible chocolate poop for a snack to give you energy to prepare to pass the physical tests: shoveling hay, carrying heavy buckets of food? Play some fun relay races to prove you are ready! Then meet a special guest in the animal field where you will learn animal husbandry, training and care of our animals. What are the requirements to be a zookeeper. And what can you do now to get ready. Your fun filled zoo day will be accompanied by lots of hands-on encounters, feeding demonstrations, live animals, props, crafts, and more. Sign up now, and ignite your passion to be a zoo keeper for a day!
