In a Facebook post, the zoo wrote: “You are given the opportunity to spend the full morning with our four rescued bears, cleaning, feeding and providing them with enrichment.

“After the experience you will then head to our Leaping Lemurs Restaurant for some breakfast.

“You will also be given a gift bag to remind you of this wonderful experience and access to the zoo for the rest of the day.”

Tickets for the experience are priced at £160 each and are limited to a maximum of four participants to allow quality time with the bears.
