I work as a presenter at the college's Kirkley Hall Zoological
Gardens, teaching the public about animals and reptiles and their
natural habitats and deliver the lemur feeding time displays and
reptile handling for the general public. I also volunteer for
National Trust and I'm involved in the red squirrels conservation
project at Kirkley Hall.
I plan to gain more experience from my work with the National
Trust and working on projects such as the red squirrel conservation
to eventually get work in conservation of animals abroad somewhere
exotic like Madagascar.
