Animal education is central to all of my work – even children’s parties are educational and children come away with a better understanding of animals and the environment around them.
In addition to children’s animal parties and school assemblies, I have travelled the world spreading my knowledge of wildlife and animal conservation to keep both animals and humans safe.
Teaching children about animals and the environment at a young age is integral to raising them to have a conscientious approach to the environment and respect for those around them (regardless of species). My passion for animals was sparked at a young age and has carried through to define my career, and I love passing on that passion and knowledge to the next generation.
In addition to working with children, I have worked with a range of wildlife parks to empower the local workers to safely catch and relocate animals that pose a threat to the local community. My aim is to diffuse conflict and panic when a wild and potentially dangerous animal is nearby to reduce casualties and safeguard both animal and human populations. I feel people in very poor communities don’t get enough financial support or benefits from living with especially problematic animals, so I always have this in mind when working in Africa, Sri Lanka, or anywhere in the world.
