$125 to Be a Novice Zookeeper for a Day ($250 value)

Paired with a trained, experienced zookeeper, animal lovers can complete a day of hands-on animal care at the Animal Preservation and Teaching Zoo. Novices interact with hyenas, tropical monkeys, crocodiles, rare birds, and giant African porcupines, learning about their care, diet, and love of newspaper crossword puzzles. The zoo's staff also host two hours of lectures and insights.

Florida International Teaching Zoo

Dedicated to responsible public education and the conservation of endangered and rare animals, the staffers of the Florida International Teaching Zoo tend to a diverse collection of living beings while teaching students to do the same. Amid the rustling feathers of Lady Amherst pheasants and the uncontrollable laughter of spotted hyenas reading the works of Oscar Wilde aloud, the school’s pupils spend days practicing their cage-side manner and stockpiling wildlife know-how through classes and conservation projects around the globe. To round out their tuition, students helm zoo tours for visitors four days a week, practicing their newly minted public-management skills and granting guests a chance to take in the wonders of the natural world in an intimate setting.
