RANGER EXPERIENCES

Have you ever wanted to work with animals? Whether you’re a budding young ranger or if your childhood dream was to work with animals, our shadow a ranger experience may be for you.


JUNIOR RANGER EXPERIENCE

For the budding young animal enthusiast!

Always wanted to work with the animals? Then why not accompany one of our Animal Rangers for a lively and enjoyable session at Yorkshire Wildlife Park. Be prepared to get dirty and smelly as you clean out the enclosures, help prepare diets and feed the animals.

See how we record observations, do health checks and provide enrichment for some of our many animals on site. This is the chance to get “hands on” and get a glimpse into the world of an Animal Ranger. Participants will also receive a certificate pack as a record of their achievement.

This must be pre-booked in advance. Don’t forget your camera as there are some great opportunities for photos!

“My daughter was bought a junior ranger experience here recently and it was absolutely fantastic!!! I can’t recommend it enough! The wonderful staff opened the cafe to us early so we didn’t have to wait for her in the cold before the park opened. We had a fantastic breakfast in there while we waited. The best part of the experience was the zookeeper Karl Hudson (no relation), he was fantastic with the girls!

He taught them lots of interesting things about each of the animals, brought my daughter out of her shell (he couldn’t get a word in by the end bless him) and really encouraged her love of animals while showing her how to be respectful of their space. I honestly can’t praise him enough, he deserves a pay rise! It was certainly an experience my daughter will never forget! Thank you!”
