If you love animals and want to learn more about them or work with them one day, then start your journey as a member of the Zoo Cadets at Newquay Zoo!
If you are aged 12-16 years old and interested in the Zoo, animals and conservation then the Zoo Cadets is for you. Meeting on the first Saturday of every month between 11.00 am and 1.00 pm, the Zoo Cadets will have the opportunity to learn many fantastic zoo keeping skills and be involved in all sorts of interesting activities.
Cadets will be involved in loads of great activities around the Zoo - including feeding and cleaning out the animals, designing an enclosure, performing animal health checks and making enrichment toys.
