One of the best things about ZooLab has got to be working with an incredible team! Each month, Ranger Anna will interview a member of the ZooLab family.
This month we will be speaking to ZooLab Ranger, Emily!
Hi Emily, how long have you worked for ZooLab?
What is your role in the company?
Educational Animal Presenter
With ZooLab, everyday is different! Can you think of a day which was completely out of the ordinary for you?
I love watching people's faces light up when they conquer a fear! I also love that I get to teach and educate about conservation and important environmental topics.
Tell us a little bit about yourself! What's your favourite animal and why?
I studied Zoology in Cornwall, so I have a big fascination with marine life and the ocean. I used to be an outdoor instructor so I love being outdoors doing extreme sports. My favourite animal has got to be a wolf! I think they are beautiful creatures.
Who is your hero?
Got to be Sir David Attenborough.
If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
The Galapagos Islands. I went there to do some research work and fell in love - It was very hard to leave!
Tell us some of your hobbies!
I'm an artist, so I love to paint. I also love rock-climbing.
What is your biggest accomplishment?
I think one of the moments I was most proud of was seeing my artwork up in a shop window and then later seeing it had sold!
And finally, what did you want to be when you were young?
A zookeeper or a vet.
