Creature Keeper (for NDIS planholders and children with a disability)

We know that for children with a disability, interacting with animals can provide countless benefits towards general well-being, developing a sense of responsibility, social inclusion and increased functionality. This program offers a safe experience in small groups designed to build a participant’s independence, confidence, skills and knowledge of wildlife. Participants spend a day with our Head Keepers, learning about animals and how we care for them. The sights, sounds, smells and immersive environment of the Animal Park allows for self-paced discovery of living things. Participants are encouraged to connect with animals and nature to develop confidence, engagement and communication.

Activities include – Creating and providing enrichment object for a range of animals Feeding (aviary hand feed, treats to goats, alpacas, calves with milk, koala top up browse) Handling (walking animals, time in the sun for reptiles) Grooming (brushing and washing Farmyard animals) Helping cleaning enclosures or providing bedding to animals Limit: 4 per workshop
