Urban Safari trains young Langley zoo keepers

The South Surrey rescue facility was part of the Rivers Day festivities at the Derek Doubleday Arboretum last weekend.

Urban Safari Rescue Society is taking registration for the junior zoo keeping course for youth aged 13 to 17 years of age.

This “one-of-a-kind” course will teach your teen how to care for animals of all kinds. They will explore careers working with animals.

They will learn about rescue groups, zoos, and conservation efforts and why they exist and many more topics are covered in this eight week course that begins Oct. 15 and runs every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.

Organizers say the course covers possible careers working with animals, animal husbandry, safety, pest control, caring for animals of all kinds in zoos, and more.

The course is $230, and offered at Urban Safari in South Surrey, at 1395 176th St.
