"Keeper-for-a-Day" - Aidan Pierce
Aidan Pierce had the treat of being 'A Keeper for a Day' today. Aidan, aged 12, attends Lake Middle School on the Isle of Wight. He's planning to become a Zoologist when he's older.
Tara Hayter, Education Officer at the Park, spent most of the day with Aidan and said he had been a great help and really enthusiastic about being part of the Animal Care Team for the day.
When I asked Aidan what he'd experienced he reeled off (with a grin on his face) a list of scratches, nibbles and nudges he was proud to have accumulated from various Park residents! He said he'd had a great day and that the experience had made him even more enthusiastic about pursuing a career involved with animals.
