I’ve always been passionate about animals and wildlife and I still remember the excitement of coming face to face with wild animals and interacting with them. Now, I direct that passion towards educating children (and adults) about conservation and animals in general.
I travel the world to study wildlife create unique animal and community conservation projects, including my latest endeavour – School of Croc. My travels have included assisting various crocodile captures and relocations, as well as handling animals and creating devices to ensure that people with less training or experience can safely continue my work. I’ve also worked in Beirut, Lebanon, and in Uganda where I train and share my knowledge on how to relocate large crocs safely – many crocs die during this process, and I hope that my work ensures that we can ensure that more survive their move.
My latest project, School of Croc, entails taking children from the UK to work with children in other countries (such as Uganda) to teach them about conservation and the importance of looking after the environment and all of the animals in it.
Animals have a really special place in my heart, so I dedicate a lot of my time to being in the wild and protecting them. I think it’s important to pass on positive messages about animals that we live with, which is why I travel the world trying to spread that message. Because of what I see on my travels and because of the amazing children I spend my time with, I see myself as the luckiest person in the world.
Safari Pete and Charles Mason are one of the only traveling wildlife shows in the UK that actively create and funds small conservation projects thanks to many of our schools and families that book with us.
