Keeper for a Day

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Zoo Atlanta has made some changes to our programming that promote the continued well-being of both our guests and the animals. As such, many programs that include behind-the-scenes experiences will remain closed after the Zoo reopens for the remainder of 2020. As such, all Keeper for a Day programming for 2020 has been canceled. Please check back later in the year for availability in 2021.
