Hey guys! New to this zoo chat malarkey but always followed it. Any zoo-keepers here? I'm an animal keeper, not so much what I'd call a 'proper' zoo keeper just yet, but a keeper in a collection. (I'm from Bristol by the way!). I'm interested in the pathways you took to get to the next step deeper into the industry- I'm not keen on uni but I have several related diplomas, qualifications and an apprenticeship- as well as 5 years in animal collections (some with 'zoo' species!).
