Being a part of this projects offers you a real animal experience where you can be a real zookeeper and you can expand your experience with (exotic) animals! You can help us with the daily care of abandonned and mistreaten animals. Beside that, you can enjoy the nature of the beautiful country named Hungary!

About us
Repzootic Animal Center is a sanctuary and educational center in Hungary, nearby Pécs. We give a last home to exotic 'pets' who were abandonned or mistreaten. We also take in Hungarian wildlife to release them in the nature again. Our mission is to educate people about nature and wildlife and these exotic 'pets'. 

I am a Belgian girl with crazy dreams who moved to Hungary to start this education and experience center with my very loved animals. I'm in the animal business for years and I still love every single creature. I have a lot of experience with exotic animals and I would love to teach you what I know and show you that no dream is too much to create.

Repzootic Animal Center is expanding. That means there are a lot of cages to build and a lot of new animals to arrive.

Repzootic Animal Center is a non-profit organisation who gives educational lessons in whole Europe. We survive by giving these lessons and by organsation events. 

Our animals
We have a lot of different animals at our site. Most of them are small mammals like foxes, wolfdogs, porcupines, mongooses, marsupials, small cats, rodents and more. But also reptiles, amphibians and  birds do live at our center. This amount of animals can teach you a lot about their needs, their husbandry and more. A very special experience for any animal lover!

Friend for life
What's a better friend than a friend who shares your interests? We work with a lot of volunteers and students, so it's possible you won't be alone in this job. Sharing an accomodation and helping each other as zookeepers, you can learn a lot and most of al; make a lot of fun!

Typical day

Being a zookeeper means:

  • Feeding the animals and cleaning their water bowls
  • Observing the animals
  • Making some enrichment for them
  • Help them when they are in (medical) need
  • Learn about them
But also
  • Cleaning their cages
  • Building some new enclosures
  • Gardening around the enclosures
  • Give educational lessons to groups

Hungary is a country where you have plenty of time. We don't rush and we don't scream. We love our animals and we give them the best care we can. After that, without rushing, we can do some other maintaining jobs but we can also love our nature and country. 

We hope to see you soon!
