    Personal Statement

    I completed an undergraduate degree in Marine Biology and a Masters in Animal Behaviour and Welfare at Queen's University Belfast. I then spent 9 months in South Africa studying wild populations of Meerkats with the Kalahari Meerkat Project. After returning from South Africa, I completed a 1 year zoo keeping internship at Chester Zoo, working as part of the Small Mammal team. The Small Mammal team looked after everything from Sebas Bats and Turkish Spiny Mice to Giant Anteaters, Aardvarks and Tree Kangaroos.
