At Tasmania Zoo, we know that keepers are passionate about nature and animals – and not just the ones they work with! Our natural state is renowned for an abundance of unique wildlife, beautiful scenery and a more relaxed pace of life. As a ZAA Animal Welfare Accredited member we participate in regional and international conservation programs; and are in an active growth phrase as our zoo family continues to expand with new species. We are seeking a full-time keeper to join our dedicated team (start date ASAP).
Tasmania Zoo is located only 15 minutes’ drive from Launceston and central to several large national parks in the region. We recognise the values that engaging visitors through wildlife experiences and interpretation have in promoting local conservation actions. Our animals include a wide range of native and exotic species from reptiles, birds, marsupials and primates, to large and small carnivores. Devils Heaven is our special breeding program that supports formal conservation management through ties to government Save the Tasmanian Devil Program (STTDP) and ZAA.
