Feeding animals, cleaning cages, building new enclosures, ... You can be a real zookeeper in Hungary!
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! Beside that, you can enjoy the nature of the beautiful country names Hungary!
Repzootic Animal Center is a breeding center and private zoo located in Hungary, nearby Pécs. We keep and breed a lot of exotic mammals, reptiles, amphibians, arthropods and birds and we try to educate people over this kind of animals.
We're a young Belgian couple who moved to Hungary to start this education and experience center with our very loved animals. We're in the animal business for years and we still love every single creature. We have a lot of experience with exotic animals and we would love to teach you what we know!
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 Experience and Education Center is a non-profit organisation who gives educational lessons in whole Europe about keeping exotic animals in captivity. We breed some (endangered) species and some rare breeds of Hungarian pets. A lot of our animals came to us after they ware kept by misinformed people. Now they can stay here for the rest of their life and enjoy our lovable care!
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 a lot of 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!
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
- Cleaning their cages
- Building some new enclosures
- Gardening around the enclosures

Hungary is a land 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!
