    I'm Alex, i'm a 15 year old aspiring zookeeper.

    I came here a while back to look at jobs and made an account today (Finally!)

    Any tips I could do around my age (15) right now to help with my future aspiration? :D

    Note: I've been told multiple times from zookeepers about experience and how it effects your chances drastically? Is this true?
    I've done a week at Knowsley Safari Park in their Academy and i sure am enjoying myself!

    Thanks :)
