It is always so good to hear feedback from our visitors as to how interesting and informative the keeper talks, and displays are. Our keepers have a common love of animals, but they also have a range of different qualities and experience. I think if we got a world map and plotted all the different countries that our staff had visited, we would be able to cover quite a lot of it! Many of the holidays or trips that the staff have been on do involve animals and wildlife somehow. Along with their work and voluntary experience, this combined knowledge has helped to form the wealth of information that our keepers can pass on to visitors. If you are visiting the Park, please do take the time to listen to one of the keeper talks or watch one of the displays – they really are worth it!


Name: Hannah Loughnane Position: Cover Keeper


I have been a keeper for 8 years now but only recently joined the team and the Lake District Wildlife Park in January 2018. Most people ask: “How do you get into this line of work?” In my case, it was hard work, persistence and a lot of shovelling poo for free. After leaving school, I travelled a lot, volunteering across the world. My travels took me to Borneo, South Africa and Madagascar on a variety of wildlife projects. When I was back at home, I also volunteered every holiday and weekend at local zoos and wildlife parks.


All my voluntary work reiterated that this was the career that I wanted to pursue. Not many

knowing that people pay and give up their day to essentially become a keeper for an hour. It is lovely to talk to the adults and kids who share a passion for the animals and to have the opportunity to educate visitors on conservation is brilliant.


The downside to the job is having to work on Christmas morning, missing out on the morning mince pies and chocolate! However, if that is the only downside, then I am on to a winner!

people can say that they have seen Orangutans, Rhinos and Lemurs in the wild and now I get to work with species like this on a regular basis. You do have a ‘pinch’ yourself moment now and then and realise how lucky you are to do this job.


I love all animals but my favourites at the Park are Muffin and Zico our two Brazilian Tapirs. They adore their morning cuddles and are a crowd favourite. Zico is 2 years old and cheeky and Muffin being 17, is a very laid- back character!


My favourite part of the job are the keeper talks, or leading a keeper experience because it brings back to you how lucky we really are,


Hannah giving Zico a good chin tickle!
