Testimonial February 2014

"Dear Exmoor Zoo staff,
I would like to thank you for the privilege of spending a week with you and
getting a clearer idea of the fantastic work you do for your animals each
day. The experience is appreciated and I will apply it should I get the
privilege of becoming a Zoo keeper myself. I have recently submitted an
application in regards to becoming a keeper assistant at the West Midlands
Safari Park, should you have any contacts for this location you would be
willing to share please let me know. Any help at all in this area would be
greatly appreciated. If you require anything from me please just ask, I have
already recommended your Zoo to my immediate contacts should they go south
for a holiday. I hope that you and your animals are safe from the floods and
are coping well.
Once again thank you.
