Visit Hemsley Conservation Centre and get up close and personal with some of the residents by becoming an Animal Keeper for the day.

You’ll have an introduction session and take a tour of the conservation centre before getting down to business. Meet the reptiles for a clean and feed, before making sure the marmosets are fed and watered. Then, you’ll meet the resident porcupines and head over to feed the meerkats and pop in to see the lemurs. Finally, you’ll feed the kinkajou, where your keeper will also give you a talk about these amazing animals.
