Zookeeping for a spectrum of Australian animals

Are you interested in learning what it takes to work in the zoo industry?
How about working alongside an amazing array of Australian wildlife, learning how we can look after nature and save the planet? Pathways at Reptile Encounters might be for you!
Pathways is a program designed for teenagers (15+) and young adults who are on the Autism Spectrum and are wanting to learn about zookeeping. 
The program focuses on learning about occupational health and safety, appropriate behaviour in the workplace, caring for animals, sustainability/climate change and more advanced topics such as reptile healthcare.
The goal is to help prepare participants for the workplace and help them determine what their best path is as well as providing a safe space for them to flourish.
There are opportunities to feed lizards, create enrichment items for our birds and macropods, learn to handle animals correctly and so much more.
It’s an NDIS registered program created and run by university-qualified facilitators.
If you are interested in joining Pathways contact Reptile Encounters and come in for a meeting. You are sure to love Connie the Barking Owl, Charlie the Saltwater Crocodile, Victor the Carpet Python, Pano the Yellow Spotted Monitor as well as many other native animals.
