EVE WITH THE RING TAILED LEMURS
You can meet one of the Brooklands Zoo’s keepers here and find out a bit more about them and the work they do at the zoo.
I’ve volunteered and worked in Canada at zoos, aquariums and with wildlife rehabilitation since 2003 and have been the Assistant Curator at Brooklands Zoo since January 2008.
I am a true ‘animal geek’ and have always wanted to work with animals and conservation.
Working in a job that I’m so passionate about – I feel very lucky to work in this role.
Not being able to comfort an animal if it’s feeling unwell. (Most animals in zoos aren’t able to be handled all that closely due to their wild natures.)
I’m generally based in the office now as a lot of paperwork is generated with running a zoo. In the past I have worked with a wide range of exotic animals.
I really can’t choose a favourite - each animal has their own quirky personality.
For such a small zoo Brooklands Zoo has a lot of personality and a great team of staff.
