Tom Metcalfe – a most charming “Keeper for a Day”


Yesterday (Weds, 21st September), Tom Metcalfe from Totland on the Isle of Wight, was treated to being a Keeper for a Day by his girlfriend – as a birthday present.  Tom was really delightful company and a pleasure to have as a part of the Animal Care Team!  He embraced the day with great enthusiasm – diving into every experience with good humour and an eagerness to be involved.  At the end of his day with us Tom said he didn’t have any favourite animals – he loved them all – but the moment when he saw the young Joey peek out of its mother’s pouch was a once in a lifetime experience.  Tom’s parting question to us was: “would I be boring if I did this again next year?'”
