Drayton Manor Park in Staffordshire is giving animal lovers aged between 8 and 15 years the exclusive opportunity to join Drayton Manor Park’s Zoo Club for the 2017 season.

It’s a very exciting time at the zoo, as the 100+ species already in residence are soon to be joined by lots of new and exciting creatures including red panda, Sulawesi crested macaques, bearded lizards, golden headed lion tamarins and some very cute dik diks.

The Zoo Club is giving children with a passion for animals the amazing opportunity to meet and care for rare and endangered creatures, and learn from some of the most experienced animal welfare experts in the country.

Club activities include wrapping presents for big cats, making dinner for cheeky monkeys and creating mealworm sandcastles for the meerkats. Each session is different and full of fun providing a fantastic opportunity to learn all about the fascinating creatures at Drayton Manor Park.
